earned his reputation as one of the leaders of the craft cocktail
movement. Through his work with food and hospitality legends like
Mario Batali, Steve Wynn, and Harry Denton, Abou-Ganim has earned

traditional art of mixology into the 21st century for the benefit
of new generations.
On the heels of the success of The Modern Mixologist:
Contemporary Classic Cocktails, Tony Abou-Ganim has written
Vodka Distilled as a companion piece focusing entirely on
this clear spirit. It is a comprehensive look at the vodka
marketplace, geared toward those working in the profession as well
as the giant audience of vodka drinkers. This one-of-a-kind
resource establishs a new standard in defining and understanding
the world's most consumed spirit.
Vodka Distilled appeal to both enthusiasts and aficionados
by explaining how traditional-style vodkas-those produced in
Eastern Europe-differ in character from those made in the West, and
how different raw materials and distillation and filtration methods
contribute to these variations in character. By breaking down the
characteristics of each highlighted vodka, Abou-Ganim helps readers
better understand, appreciate, and enjoy this noble spirit.
