Gin sales are at record levels and it’s the big drink of the moment. Flavoured gin, gin festivals, it’s the revival no one knew! And if you love books and gin, then later this year The World Atlas of Gin is coming, a book about the booming gin scene around the globe.
The book will be published worldwide in several languages and is due for release in September of this year.
The synopsis reads “The World Atlas of Gin looks at the extraordinarily broad appeal of gin worldwide, covering everything from botanicals to bottle: gin made in small batches using local botanicals, through to large facilities which make some of the world’s most recognized gin brands. Global cocktails are included too, exploring the history and country of origin of some of the best-known mixed gin drinks.”
Authors Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley are well known experts in the gin industry and write for publications around the world including the Daily Telegraph and BBC Good Food, appear regularly on the television show Sunday Brunch, and act as judges for the prestigious International Wine and Spirit Competition.
They are already co-authors of Distilled, which won the Fortnum & Mason Drink Book of the Year 2015. The World Atlas of Gin will focus on more than 300 producers of gin from over fifty countries around the world who draw on local botanicals to create truly individual and often unique tastes.
The World Atlas of Gin will be published in September and is available for pre-order now.
