This celebration of the clear liquor in all its guises will go down as smoothly as a lovingly created gin and tonic.

A toast to gin, whether enjoyed straight, flavored, in a mixed drink, or as an ingredient in cooking. Lavishly illustrated and written in an easy-to-read style, this delightful guide not only offers classic cocktail recipes, but also describes the history of the spirit, its production and distillation, and its many variations. You'll learn where to buy the premier brands, and get tasting notes to guide you.
