GIN DICTIONARY

DAVID T. SMITH    Book Number: 90295    Product format: Hardback

An A-Z of all things gin, from juniper berries to the G&T, which is now truly back in vogue. The gin renaissance has spread around the world and long may the passion continue. With such a rich tapestry of history, not to mention the range of exotic and unusual ingredients and methodologies employed in making gin, now the bamboozling definitions and terms are clarified, all the way to bartenders, distillers and gin super-fans. The author has tried around 1,500 gin varieties from nearly 50 different countries and is forever researching new and historical production techniques and recipes. He distils the best in his exciting and beautifully produced A-Z with full page gorgeous colour illustrations, some of botanical elements like cloves or lavender or juniper, others of honey and base spirits, shapes of glasses. Along the way we learn about the Gin Acts of the 1700s (designed to curb the consumption of gin), the Dirty Martini, The Diamond Method, Finsbury London Dry Gin, boot cups. Know your Orris root from your rotovap evaporator, shaking and stirring, spearmint and sweet orange, and explanation of ABV (alcohol by volume) and aged gin right through to Yuzu a botanical, a small, Japanese citrus fruit, popular in Japanese gin. 256pp, colour illus.
