Synopsis

Calling all spirit enthusiasts, wannabe mixologists and fans of aperitifs and digestifs... That's the Spirit! is here to guide and entertain you through the world of spirits and liqueurs, including whiskies both familiar and surprising, dangerous tequila and mezcal, gin and its Dutch counterpart genever, under-rated grappa, love-it-or-hate-it Bailey's, legendary absinthe and enough rum to make you book a flight to Jamaica immediately.

Behind this very well-stocked, virtual bar is author Jonathan Ray, who knows a thing or two about alcohol, being drinks editor of the Spectator. Through his personal selection of the 100 most deliciously fascinating spirits and liqueurs in the world, he tells us all about the makers behind the drinks, what makes certain brands so enduring and fascinating, which famous drinkers had one glass too many, and what makes specific tipples taste so irresistible.

Among these 100 bottles are tips on your essential home cocktail kit, the world's best cocktail bars, which glassware is right for which drink, and the ultimate way to serve key spirits at home.

Fans of Jonathan's best-selling Drink More Fizz! and all things alcoholic will love this invaluable excuse to drink spirits with style.

About the Publisher

Quadrille Publishing

Quadrille Publishing

It was in 1994 that Quadrille Publishing announced itself to the world, a team of four with a dream: the creation of a small list of books that would innovate in every way, editorial, design, production and sales, stay in print for many years, and be sold the world over. Two whole (long) decades later, how the world has changed, yet our goal remains. Our new list reflects these aims. Our craft list is heralded by our second The Great British Sewing Bee TV tie-in book, Sew Your Own Wardrobe, packed wtih desirable projects and packaged with five full-size pattern sheets - a first for a TV tie-in. Love at First Stitch by Tilly Walnes, herself a contestant in the first The Great British Sewing Bee, is a brilliant introduction to the world of sewing, full of glorious must-have garments and already attracting wide interest, The Cath Kidston Sewing Book is a dazzling follow up to the most successful craft book ever in the UK, Sew!
