The Whisky River - Distilleries of Speyside (Paperback, Revised): Robin Laing The Whisky River - Distilleries of Speyside (Paperback, Revised)
Robin Laing; Illustrated by Bob Dewar
R425 Discovery Miles 4 250 Special order

Which river has half the distilleries in Scotland found along its length and in its surrounding glens? Were monks at the forefront of developing whisky? Which Speyside distillery produced chilli-flavoured whisky? How did Glenrothes distillery expel its ghost? Robin Laing - singer-songwriter, author of "The Whisky Muse", and chair of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society's Tasting Panel - set out to visit every distillery in the Speyside area, from Benromach to Tomintoul, and presents a guide to each of them here. There are descriptions of over 50 distilleries on Speyside, including The Macallan, The Glenlivet, Cardhu, Aberlour, Glenfiddich and Glengrant. Each entry is part history, part travelogue and part commentary on the changes in the whisky industry. It includes personal musings by the author, stories associated with the distillery and snippets of poetry and song. Laing's 'spirit' guide in his journey is Alfred Barnard, author of "1887's "The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom. Barnard visited many of the same distilleries that Laing visits now and similarly left his impressions of the state of the facilities and the beauty of the surroundings. Much of this present book compares what Barnard found with what exists now, and the differences - and similarities - are often fascinating.

Whiskies of Scotland (Hardcover, Revised and Updated ed.): Michael Jackson Whiskies of Scotland (Hardcover, Revised and Updated ed.)
Michael Jackson 1
R415 R350 Discovery Miles 3 500 Save R65 (16%) Special order

The northern European climate of rugged Scotland is too chilly to grow grapes, but it does support fields of barley and rushing streams of crystal waters, which combine to make outstanding whisky - well-aged, single-malt varieties connoisseurs throughout the world prize above all other distilled spirits (save for the cognacs and Armagnacs of France). This book presents Michael Jackson's broad knowledge and love of these whiskies with superb colour photographs of Scotland and its landscape. The French contend that the land dictates the kind of wine that its vines produce, and if this is true it follows that Scotland's whiskies will vary from one distillery to another depending on the qualities of the grain and water composing the final outcome. Michael Jackson, in his Malt Whisky Companion, was the first writer to describe in detail the aromas and flavors of Scotland's most famous product. In The Whiskies of Scotland he goes even deeper into the world of whisky, discussing the 'terroir' that shapes the many tastes of this classic liquor. Jackson's passion for Scotland and its whiskies comes through clearly and deliciously, and photographer Harry Cory Wright perfectly captures the places that Jackson so magically and lovingly describes.

Alchemy in a Glass shows readers how to create stunning transformations of spirits and ingredients at home, and helps them understand the art of balancing flavours, mixers, and spirits with the guidance of cocktail craftsman, Greg Seider. Seider, who has created cocktail programs for top New York City restaurants as well as running the acclaimed Summit Bar in the East Village, has a culinary background, and approaches cocktail creation as the art of understanding how different flavours work together and develop over the course of a drink. He prizes the use of fresh, seasonal, and homemade ingredients, which he uses to infuse and garnish his drinks. Drawing on Seider's experience developing cocktail programs for acclaimed chefs such as Thomas Keller and Eric Ripert, this book will go beyond recipes to help readers understand how flavours work in a drink, giving them the why as well as the how. Taking each cocktail as a journey for the palette, Seider shares recipes for more than fifty original cocktails, punches, and classics with a twist, as well as recipes for bitters, garnishes, infusions and elixirs that make his drinks the exciting, unique creations that they are. Perfect for food lovers and a must for aspiring and experienced home mixologists, this book is an inspiring companion for anyone who likes to taste.

Bringing to life a legendary but little-known aspect of Irish history, this is a serious but by no means solemn study of illicit alcohol distilling in Ireland. It is a human and social document of unusual interest and a unique blend of folklore, economics, law, and, in its accounts of the inevitable conflicts between the revenue men and the poteen makers, tragicomedy. Neither romanticizing nor sentimentalizing the business, this study also includes background on the mania for ether-inhaling that afflicted certain places and people. This witty collection of historical anecdotes, recipes, and verses also contains a section of old photographs, which bring their own atmosphere and authenticity to the story.

"We may go to Europe for our chefs, but Europe comes to us for our bartenders." W. C. Whitfield In the Gay Nineties, the American bartender was considered an institution his fame spread across the globe and, according to Whitfield, visitors to America "bowed before his skill in concocting tempting mixtures." Whitfield felt this attraction and admiration of the American bartender was because Americans "will try anything once." We enjoy experimenting and, when it comes to mixing drinks, "we stop at nothing." This led to much creativity behind the bar. W. C. Whitfield's Mixed Drinks & Cocktails combines two fully-illustrated books of recipes from this time period Just Cocktails (published in 1939) and Here's How: Mixed Drinks (1941) to teach readers everything they need to know about mixing drinks. In addition to information about equipment and measurements, this collection includes more than six hundred recipes, including: The Bronx Express Ladies Delight Corpse Reviver Brandy Blazer Uncle Sam Highball And many more!

*A Glass Apart is a complete guide to the profiles, production, history, and revival of Irish pot still whiskey* Beautifully illustrated work on the history and production of Ireland's national drinkof interest to casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike Adored by the Victorians, forged by bootleggers, forgotten by the 50s and tragically tied to Ireland's ghost town landscape of disused distilleries, single pot still" whiskey has had an almost romantic mystique for many world whiskeyphiles as the endangered sister of the single malt and the unsung spine of Ireland's own distilling heritage. Although once the most popularly esteemed whiskey in the record-keeping world, Ireland's history and politics resulted in the near annihilation of the national spirit and, by the 1980s, the full-bodied oils and gingery spices that first put both Ireland and whiskey itself at the top table of global drinks had been swept into the closet by marketed promises of super-smooth blending and easily palatable Irish charm. But that's all thankfully begun to change. Forget everything you were told about light Irish" delicacy. After decades of outspoken adoration from critics, bloggers, global drammers and a few devoted Irish distillers, single pot still has at last sprung back from the casket of bartending curiosa and taken its rightful place among the most awarded spirits in contemporary distilling. A Glass Apart: Irish Pot Still Whiskey is an introduction and a love letter to the history, craft, and diversity of Ireland's re-awoken firewater phoenix that will delight both longtime tipplers and curious novices with a longer look at Ireland's most uniquely Irish whiskey.
