Overview

Classic Gin by Geraldine Coates

Gin is one of the world's great drink—classless, genderless, truly international. It has a fascinating history, beginning with its origins in medieval monasteries (as a cordial reputed to protect against the plague). More recently, gin has played a leading role in the revival of "cocktail culture" and the discerning drinker's rediscovery of spirits with character and tradition. Classic Gin covers the story and culture of the drink, how it is made, histories and tasting notes for all the classic gins, new arrivals in the premium sector, and gins from around the world (including genevers); there are also gin cocktail recipes and cooking tips. The book explains what makes each classic brand special, depending on which combination of root herbs and botanicals is used—juniper, coriander, angelica, lemon peel, cassia, ginger, nutmeg, or others. Both informative and entertaining, Classic Gin will enhance the pleasure of all who enjoy this spirit. Geraldine Coates' previous book was Discovering Gin.
