The Spirits Collection
By Dave Broom
Three accessible guides by award-winning spirits writer Dave Broom, brought together in an attractive box set.
THE SPIRITS COLLECTION contains three books:
Gin The Manual * Rum The Manual * Whisky The Manual
The range of fantastic spirits available around the world has never been better. You can enjoy a Mediterranean-style gin from Spain, a rhum agricole from Martinique and a malt whisky from Japan. But how do you navigate through the wealth of options? And how do you know the best mixers to drink with each, or the most delicious cocktails to make?
Award-winning spirits author Dave Broom has done all the research for you. In these three manuals he includes for each spirit more than 100 outstanding examples for you to try. And he has also tested each spirit many ways - with tonic, coconut water, cola and so on - and scored the results. Delicious classic and contemporary cocktail recipes round things off.
Dave Broom is an award-winning author specialising in spirits. He has been writing about drinks for more than 25 years and has won multiple awards for his work.
Praise for Gin The Manual:
'You could not write a more sophisticated book or pack more detail onto each page... it is rocket science impressive.'
