    Title: Gin Glorious Gin: How Mother's Ruin Became the Spirit of London
    Author: WILLIAMS OLIVIA

    A vibrant cultural history of London seen through the prism of its most iconic drink
    Leading the reader through the underbelly of the Georgian city via the Gin Craze, detouring through the Empire (with a G&T in hand), to the emergence of cocktail bars in the West End, the story is brought right up to date with the resurgence of class in a glass--the Ginnaissance. As gin has crossed paths with Londoners of all classes and professions over the past 300 years it has become shorthand for metropolitan glamour and alcoholic squalor in equal measure. In and out of both legality and popularity, gin is a drink that has seen it all. This quirky, informative account is full of famous faces--from Dickens to Churchill, Hogarth to Dr Johnson--and introduces many previously unknown Londoners, hidden from history, who have shaped the city and its signature drink.

    Title: Gin Tonica 40 Recipes for Spanish-style Gin & Tonic Cocktails
    Author: SMITH DAVID T

    Aromatic, refreshing, delicious and a feast for the eyes, the generously-sized and creatively garnished "gin tonica" Spanish-style drink is taking the cocktail world by storm.

    Spaniards love their gin and tonics. In Spain, the bartender doesn't ask you what you want to drink, he asks you how you want your gin and tonic prepared. This simplest of drinks--just gin, tonic, ice and a garnish--is now considered the national drink of Spain. The trend started in the north of Spain, in Basque country, where you can walk into a bar and upon ordering you are presented with a cart teeming with gin and tonic options to create your very own bespoke drink. A beautiful cocktail with a variety of herb and flower garnishes, a Spanish-style gin and tonic or "gin tonica", is made with a premium gin and the best quality tonic water, combined with bitters and various herbs, spices, flowers, and fruits that will complement the botanicals of a specific gin. It is served over ice in an oversized balloon glass--the idea being that the shape enables the drinker to enjoy all the lovely aromas their drink gives off. For a cocktail with only two ingredients, the flavor potential is staggering! Making a gin tonica is an intricate process, sometimes taking a barman as long as 15 minutes to deliver the ideal drink. The ice has to be dense so that it melts slowly, the glass might be spritzed with a fine layer of citrus oil, chilled to perfection, with the tonic poured in delicately. No detail is ignored, the wait is part of the experience, and the result is absolutely delicious. Attention to detail and respect for the classic is what truly elevates the Spanish gin tonica above all others. With more gin brands and styles of tonic available than ever before, and 40 inspired recipes here to try at home, there has never been a better time to discover the joy of the gin tonica--saludos!

    How gin is madeWhat a botanical is and how they impact a gin's flavorWhat the difference between Dutch, London, Scottish, Spanish and American gins isHow you drink them to maximize your pleasureWhether there is life beyond the gin & tonic (yes )
    The body of the book covers 120 gins which Dave has tested four ways - with tonic, with lemonade, in a negroni and in a martini - and then scored. In addition, each gin is categorized according to an ingenious flavor camp system, which highlights its core properties and allows you to understand how you can best drink it, and therefore enjoy it.

    Title: Glass Apart: Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey
    Author: O'CONNOR FIONNAN

    This book illustrates the production, history, and appreciation of Irish pot still whiskey and will introduce casual drinkers to the richness of these whiskeys as well as being a collector's item for established whiskey connoisseurs. Irish single pot still whiskey has a romantic mystique for many whiskey critics because of its tragic history as the lost sister of single malt scotch. Ireland's history and politics resulted in the near-annihilation of the national drink and there's an almost eerie beauty to the silent distilleries that still dot the Irish countryside. These distilleries inform the aesthetic of the title and, indeed, there is visual poetry in the barrels, pot stills and photogenic amber spirits that convey the Irish whiskey world. Although Irish whiskey is currently the fastest-growing global spirits category and Irish pure pot still has long been a favourite drink among whiskey critics and connoisseurs, the existing literature is still surprisingly sparse. This book illustrates the production, history, and appreciation of Irish pot still whiskey and will introduce casual drinkers to the richness of these whiskeys as well as being a collector's item for established whiskey connoisseurs. AUTHOR: Fionnan O'Connor tasted his first glass of Green Spot in a pub in Galway 10 years ago and has spent an excessive number of subsequent evenings trying to uncover what exactly made that tipple so bewilderingly delicious. He has travelled extensively across the distilleries of Ireland and Scotland and has a particular affection for Islay scotch, American rye, and, of course, Irish single pot still.

    Title: Godforsaken Grapes: A Slightly Tipsy Journey Through the World of Strange, Obscure, & Under-appreciated Wines
    Author: WILSON JASON

    There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world--from altesse to zierfandler--but 80 percent of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes. In Godforsaken Grapes, Jason Wilson looks at how that came to be and embarks on a journey to discover what we miss.

    Stemming from his own growing obsession, Wilson moves far beyond the "noble grapes," hunting down obscure and underappreciated wines from Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, France, Italy, the United States, and beyond. In the process, he looks at why these wines fell out of favor (or never gained it in the first place), what it means to be obscure, and how geopolitics, economics, and fashion have changed what we drink. A combination of travel memoir and epicurean adventure, Godforsaken Grapes is an entertaining love letter to wine.

    Author: DEL TODESCO CHARLES

    "A good Cuban cigar closes the door to the vulgarities of the world." Franz Liszt The cigar has arrived. Long relegated to boardrooms and backroom card tables, the cigar has emerged to attain mass appeal while still holding on to its macho mystique. Amid the wide assortment of cigars available, the Havana stands head and shoulders above the rest. Grown on patches of land at the western tip of Cuba, cured, and rolled following centuries-old traditions, for decades illegal in the United States, it has a flavor-- and a cachet--all its own. From Christopher Columbus to Fidel Castro, the Havana cigar is deeply enmeshed in Cuba's history. An ideal introduction for the cigar neophyte as well as a superb guide for the aficionado, this book explores the making of the legendary cigar, revealing the 316 manoeuvres necessary to make one, and illuminating details about its various production sites. Beautiful imagery takes the reader into the artisanal world that has given the island an unmistakable ambiance. Also included is a catalogue raisonne of Havana cigars, essential to any collector. After two years in Cuba researching the production of the cigar, Charles Del Todesco has penned a remarkable testament to this legendary status symbol, reviewing the hallowed history of cigars in Cuba, and describing in detail the processes involved in creating them. Original photography by Patrick Jantet reveals the beauty of the land and the hands and faces of the craftsmen and -women behind each Havana cigar. Also included is an invaluable catalogue raisonne of Havana cigars. 150 illustrations

    Heineken is known all around the world, but few of the drinkers who eagerly watch the foam rise in their glass have heard of the business ploys, marketing tricks and extraordinary characters that transformed the Dutch family business into a global brand. Taking us on a journey from a small brewery in Amsterdam in 1864 to the present day, The Heineken Story tells the remarkable and sometimes controversial true story of one of the world's largest brewing companies, and of Alfred 'Freddy' Heineken, the singular business man who secured its position. From spectacular takeovers and inspired marketing campaigns, to a kidnapping that brought in the largest ransom ever paid for an individual, this is a gripping account of the battle for the international beer market. Barbara Smit has experience writing on family drama, marketing and consumer culture, and in The Heineken Story she has put together a narrative that is meticulously researched, and fizzing with competition, personalities and betrayal.

    Title: Hellraisers: Life & Inebriated Times of Burton Harris Otoole
    Author: SELLERS ROBERT

    The highly entertaining biography of four charismatic and much-loved actors follows them through five decades of boozing, brawling and braggadocio. God put me on this earth to raise sheer hell.Richard Burton I was a sinner. I slugged some people. I hurt many people. And its true, I never looked back to see the casualties.Richard Harris Booze is the most outrageous of all drugs, which is why I chose it.Peter OToole I dont have a drink problem. But if that was the case and doctors told me I had to stop, Id like to think I would be brave enough to drink myself into the grave.Oliver Reed This is the story of four of the greatest thespian boozers who ever walked or staggered off a film set into a pub. Its a story of drunken binges of near biblical proportions, parties and orgies, broken marriages, drugs, riots and wanton sexual conquests. And yet these piss-artists were seemingly immune from the law. They got away with it because of their extraordinary acting talent and because the public loved them. They were truly the last of a breed, the last of the movie hellraisers.

    Title: History in a Glass Sixty Years of Wine Writing from Gourmet
    Author: REICHL RUTH (ED)

    When Gourmet magazine debuted in the 1940s, America’s wineries were still reeling from the lingering effects of Prohibition and the loss of wines from war-torn Europe. But for every closed door, there was an open bottle: The bleak postwar years were actually a prelude to today’s unprecedented and widespread appreciation for the grape. New York Times bestselling author Ruth Reichl reread sixty-five years of wine articles in Gourmet to select the best for History in a Glass. The result is a rollicking tale of great meals, great walks, and wonderful drinks as Americans discover the pleasures of wine. These marvelous essays were written by men and women who were not only on hand to witness wine’s boom but, in many cases, helped to foster the environment that made it thrive. The early days after World War II provided a great opportunity for James Beard and Frank Schoonmaker to reacquaint oenophiles with the joys of European wines. Through tireless dispatches from the Continent, they inspired American vintners to produce world-class wines on their own rich soil. In subsequent pieces, an impressive, surprisingly diverse roster of writers revel in the sensual and emotional pleasures of wine: the legendary Gerald Asher reflects on the many faces of Chianti; Hillaire Belloc dispenses bits of wisdom by the glass to his niece on her wedding day; the science fiction titan Ray Bradbury rhapsodizes about the earthy pleasures of dandelion wi≠ Kate Colman explores the moral quandary surrounding a friend’s unintentionally generous gift of a rare Bordeaux; Hugh Johnson reports on Hungarian varieties during the height of Cold War tensions in the early 1970s; even Gourmet’s current spirits editor, James Rodewald, reminisces on the first time he fell in love–with a bottle of Pinot Noir. With an Introduction by Ruth Reichl, and covering more than six decades of epicurean delights, History in a Glass is an astonishing celebration of all things good and grape.

    Title: History of Wine in 100 Bottles
    Author: CLARKE OZ

    Winemaking is as old as civilization itself, and this illuminating volume takes a unique approach to that history: by exploring 100 bottles that have had the biggest impact on the evolution of wine. Moving from the first cork tops to screw caps, renowned wine writer Oz Clarke presents such landmarks as the introduction of the cylindrical wine bottle in the 1780s; the first estate to bottle and label its own wine (formerly sold in casks to merchants only); the most expensive bottle sold at auction and the oldest unopened bottle; the change in classifications; and the creation of numerous famous vintages. Fully illustrated with photographs of bottles, labels, and other images, this is a beautiful tribute to the "bottled poetry" that is wine.

    Author: SELLERS ROBERT

    Robert Sellers traces the intertwining lives and careers of movie mavericks Brando, Hopper, Beatty and Nicholson in this remarkable follow-up to the acclaimedHellraisers. "I don't know what people expect when they meet me. They seem to be afraid that I'm going to piss in the potted palm and slap them on the ass." Marlon Brando "I should have been dead ten times over. I believe in miracles. It's an absolute miracle that I'm still around." Dennis Hopper "The best time to get married is noon. That way, if things don't work out, you haven't blown the whole day." Warren Beatty "You only lie to two people in your life: your girlfriend and the police." Jack Nicholson They're the baddest bad asses Hollywood has ever seen: Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper, Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson. These are men for whom rules did not apply, men for whom normal standards of behaviour were simply too wearisome to worry about. These are men who brawled, boozed, snorted and shagged their way into legend-hood but along the way they changed acting and the way movies were made forever. Hollywood Hellraisersis a whistle-stop tour of jaw-dropping sexual activity, misbehaviour of an Olympic standard, all-out excess and genuine madness. It's a wonder Hollywood survived.
