    Book details

We're in the middle of a new Gin Craze. Scarcely a day goes by without an established brand offering a fresh take on their established styles or, more likely, a new boutique distillery opening its doors - where gin is de rigueur. From Adnams to Zuidam; Beefeater to Bombay and London to Plymouth (and beyond) this new book from a best-selling drinks writer is the authoritative guide to the world of gin, and the first book to explore the explosion of innovative gin brands and the artisanal distillers that are reinventing this most English of drinks.With serious gin bars stocking well over 300 brands and adding still more, how do you choose? Is Edinburgh Gin a style, or just a brand name? Can a rose-flower and cucumber infusion properly be called gin? Can gin be aged in wood or does that just make it a strange tasting young whisky? And what tonic to choose, and why? In his inimitable style, best-selling drinks writer Ian Buxton will lead readers through the great gin trap with his latest no-nonsense guide to 101 Gins.

'Ian Buxton's pocket guide provides a clear and succinct guide to the best on offer' --The Bookseller'An engaging and uber-knowledgeable guide to gin from spirits guru Ian Buxton' --Alice Lascelles

Review Text

  • By Andrew on 3 June 2017

    This is a nice book, full of anecdotes and interesting facts. However, I think I would use Dave Broom's Gin: The Manual to prepare for a Gin Festival (or a gig by the Thinking Drinkers) since it focuses more consistently on the contents of the bottle, the ABV and best use across a representative range of cocktails. That said, this book is a leisurely read and has added to my store of knowledge, especially with respect to the use of corks and the names of various stills.

    A great fun book, however it may have to be re written as there must be triple that number now!

    Great little book for gin lovers out there. So far Durham gin purchased for my son who went to Durham University. Have purchased a second one for a friends 50th and gin number 50 also purchased!

    The writing is tiny. Need reading glasses even though I don't wear them. Looks ok other than that.
