The Philosophy of Gin

By Jane Peyton

Few if any alcoholic drinks have the dramatic and multifaceted history of gin. It has served as a crucial medicine, a form of escapism, an inspiration for satirical art, and a source for the phrase ‘Dutch courage’.

This concise history of gin charts the transformation of the beverage, revealing how a spirit once given a wide berth by the middle and upper classes became today’s Queen of the Drinks Cabinet. It is a fascinating history, garnished with classic cocktail recipes, tips for stirring up the perfect G & T and an introduction to the essential botanicals.

A great gift for you or the gin drinker in your life!
