Book Description from Amazon.com
Author Bob Emmons provides expert tasting notes on gin,
vodka, and aquavit - from the most popular to the more obscure. He describes
historical and current production methods, recent trends, and the different
flavoring components of these liquors. The book includes advice on how to
organize a tasting, a brief history of the martini, and a chapter of recipes
for a variety of martinis and other cocktails.
William Rice, Chicago
Timely, well conceived and evenhanded. Emmons offers 'a
little history' of each white spirit and explains how each is made. He
describes the leading bands and offers cocktail recipes. Give this as a
present along with a brace or two of martini glasses.
F. Paul Pacult, author of
Once again, spirits author Bob Emmons has squarely hit
the mark with his terrific new book . . . Clear, succinct, and packed with
the keen insights of not just a true believer, but an accomplished and
reliable authority. The Book of Gins and Vodkas goes down as smoothly as a
crisp Gin and Tonic on a sweltering July day.
Americans in droves are rediscovering the elegance and
intriguing complexity of gin and vodka. They are imbued with light bodies,
engaging and pervasive flavors, and aromas as crisp as celery. That Bob
Emmons appreciates every nuance of gin and vodka is perfectly evident. This
is a masterful work, a fitting tribute to these centuries-old spirits.
Information on two popular spirits gets distilled in The
Book of Gins and Vodkas. This 248-page volume provides a history of the
liquors, a discussion of production methods, and extensive tasting notes for
premium and super-premium brands. There are also cocktail recipes, Martini
lore and instructions for setting up gin and vodka tastings.
