No gin is like the other. Today, this is true more than ever. The number of gin brands has been steadily increasing over the past few years. Gin is fashionable. And rightly so. As gin producers can use more flavour enhancing ingredients than any other distillers, no other spirit will offer such a variety of flavours. This encyclopaedia covers the history of gin, explains types (distilled gin, compound gin, etc.), presents the most important botanicals that account for the specific flavour, and provides a detailed description of how it is produced (from distilling plain alcohol to barrel aging). The quintessence of the book is a presentation of about 150 gin brands along with their variations, including important information such as brand owners, producers, interesting facts as well as descriptions of taste profiles. And of course the author also shows us how to properly taste gin and what cocktails and long drinks can be prepared with the »world's most exciting spirit«. Karl Rudolf, Editor for various food and gourmet magazines, specialized on drinks, in particular spirits, since the early 1980s. Editor and editor-in-chief for the magazines »Drinks« and »Der Whisky-Botschafter«.
