    One thought on “Gin: The Manual”

    1. Perfect, this manual is full of detail, it covers all aspects of the origins of gin, its creation process, the different variations, the cocktails - and especially, the herbal ingredients in a very large selection of gin brands presented in a professional and thorough manner. It can only leave you with the wish of drinking nothing else than gin for the rest of your life, trying out every brand, hunting down the ones drunk best with tonic or as a martini there's even the breakfast gin, which I ha [...]

    2. A comprehensive survey of gin. The structure becomes reductive yet there are many nuggets of useful information to winkle out. On balance, I prefer Tristan Stephenson's 'The curious Bartender's Gin Palace'.

    3. Finally a book about Gin that focuses on featuring different brands of Gin with detailed info on the history and flavours of the brand. Very useful.

    4. Not quite what I was expecting. The first part of the book is a poorly written and somewhat convoluted history of gin; the second part is a catalog of current gins; the short third part is a handful of gin cocktail recipes. I was expecting more in the way of a freewheeling celebration of gin. It's packaged very nicely and I do have some ideas for some brands to try--and also the gumption now to make my own Negroni--but a little disappointing overall.

    5. While this doesn't tread much new ground in terms of history or describing the process of making gin, the book is nonetheless an invaluable resource for tasting notes on a fair number of contemporary gins.

    6. Everything you could possibly want to know about gin, including types, origins, uses and a point system for evaluation. Very detailed and gives the author's view with back-up. I thoroughly enjoyed this, especially the history. A keeper.

    7. Exactly what I needed. Comprehensive review of the different types of gin, along with descriptions of many specific brands.
