World Atlas of Gin

Joel Harrison, Neil Ridley
Authors:
Joel Harrison, Neil Ridley

Never has there been a more striking revolution in the world of distilled spirits than the current renaissance of gin. With small craft distilleries popping up all over the world, from Texas to Tasmania, more varieties and techniques being used than ever before, and a tapestry of tastes from light and citrusy to big bold savoury notes, gin's appeal is extraordinarily wide and varied.From gin made in small batches from local botanicals, through to large facilities which make some of the world's most recognized gin brands, World Atlas of Gin looks at everything from the botanical to the bottle: how and where botanicals are grown and harvested and their role within the flavour of gin; producers and the stories behind their brands; exactly where, and how, gins are made; and, country by country, the best examples to try. Global cocktails are covered too, including the history and country of origin of some of the best-known mixed gin drinks. For everyone and anyone who wants to understand more about gin, its history and production methods, the countries that have helped make it a global success story, and appreciate the best gins the world has to offer, this is the definitive guide.

Jo Wood

Jo Wood

Married to the Stones' legendary guitarist Ronnie, Jo Wood was at the heart of all-night parties, hours in the recording studio, months on tour, time spent in prison, meeting famous friends and, above all, having a good time. But her unique personal collection shows more than just the world's biggest rock band at work. Photographs, notes and diary entries reveal a previously unseen, intimate side to a group of people who weren't rock stars to Jo - they were her closest friends.Her book takes us from the chaotic days of the late 1970s - when the Stones could walk the streets of London after a night partying without being bothered by anyone - to the early days of the 2000s, when the band's tours had become corporate-sponsored events. Jo's photographs and memories show what it was like to be on the inside of music history.
