Gin introduces the reader to the global artisan gin revolution, highlighting the spirit's history and the ways that today's craft drinks-makers have transformed the notion of what a gin can and should be. New Gins are hitting the market seemingly every day. This book will help the reader make sense of this rapid expansion, and contextualize them within gin's illustrious history from the Renaissance apothecaries of Europe, to the streets of London, to the small local distilleries and cocktail bars of the United States, Canada, England, Spain, Australia and beyond. This is the first book to take a closer look at the emerging new categories of gin and to place it within context alongside the old guard. It includes profiles of key players in the distilling world and hundreds of ideas for how to drink gin - as a cocktail, in a classic gin & tonic or neat, as an aperitif or a liqueur.
