Synopsis

A unique, comprehensive and colourful guide to over 250 breweries, cider mills, vineyards and distilleries across Britain. "Entertaining and thorough. an essential handbook" Charles Maclean Recent years have seen a huge increase in the number of these places all over the country not only operating but also welcoming visitors, from small single-man producers working from home to large, world-famous labels, and from well-established brands to the revival of 200-year-old manufacturers that had almost been lost to prosperity. Now, for the first time, they have been gathered together in a single book which celebrates their craftsmanship, pinpoints their locations, describes who they are and what they do, and provides detailed information about how you can visit and sample their wares. Expert authors Ted Bruning, previously of What's Brewing magazine, and Rupert Wheeler, previously of Whisky Magazine, focus on places that are normally open during the holiday season, have a visitor centre and shop, and (in most cases) welcome families so you don't have to leave the kids in the car! Arranged by country, with chapters concentrating on individual counties and regions, no matter where you are you'll find a brewery, cider mill, distillery or vineyard within reach, many in historic, beautiful or quirky locations, from a brewery in a windmill to a distiller in the operating theatre of a former animal hospital.

About the Publisher

Bradt Travel Guides Ltd

Bradt Travel Guides Ltd

When Hilary Bradt and her then husband George set out on their travels in South America in 1973, little could they have realised that the journey they were embarking upon would lead to the creation of what has become one of the most esteemed travel publishing companies in the world. Hilary and George wrote their first guide over 40 years ago on a river barge floating down a tributary of the Amazon. Bradt Travel Guides was born. Today the company publishes over 200 titles, including full-country travel guides, regional guides, wildlife guides, Slow Travel guides to special areas of Britain, and works of travel literature. Bradt has a reputation as a pioneer in tackling ‘unusual’ destinations, for championing the causes of sustainable travel, and for the high quality of its writing. Our books are intended to be as entertaining to read as they are useful reservoirs of tourist information. And they have personality. Each is a one-of-a-kind expression of the author’s interests, expertise and passion for telling it how it really is.
