Gin: The Manual


A new edition of the expert guide to drinking gin from award-winning writer Dave Broom. He reveals everything you need to know about gin including how it’s made, why London gin is different from Spanish, American and Scots gin and how you can drink gin to maximum pleasure. The book includes 120 gins which Dave has tested four ways – with tonic, with lemonade, negroni and in a martini – and then scored. In addition, each gin is categorised according to an ingenious flavour camp system, which highlights its core properties and allows you to understand how you can best drink it, and therefore enjoy it.
