Product Description

Jason Wilson explores the origins of what we drink and the often surprising reasons behind our choices in this unique blend of travelogue, spirits history, and recipe collection. Wilson champions Old World liquors with hard-to-define-flavors - a bitter and complex italian amari, or the ancient, aromatic herbs of Chartreuse, as well as distinctive New World offerings like lively Peruvian pisco. With an eye for adventure, Wislon seeks out visceral experiences at the source of production - visiting fields of spiky agave, entering the heavily and reverently-guarded Jagermeister herb room in Wolfenbuttel, and journeying to the French Alps to determine if mustachioed men in berets really handpick blossoms to make elderflowert liqueur. In addition, there are more than fifty drink recipes from three riffs on the Manhattan to cocktail-geek favorites like the Aviation and the Last Word. These recipes are presented alongside a host of opinionated essays that cherish the rare, uncover the obscure, dethrone the overrated, and unravel the mysteries of taste, trends, and terroir. Index. 232p.
