Summary

Summary

Gin is the world's second favourite spirit - a sophisticated drink with enduring popular appeal. This book examines the history of the drink, from its roots as a medicine in 16th-century Holland through its chequered history as England's national drink, to its Prohibition heyday as the cocktail set's choice in 1920s USA. It also examines the distilling processes and tasting notes for all the classic gin brands from around the world, and includes gin cocktail and cooking tips.
