This book draws on accounting records from the sector to reveal fresh and unique insights into the historic development of the production of alcoholic beverages.

Offering a historic overview of the three major areas of the alcohol industry ¿ brewing, distilling and wine ¿ this book reveals the commonalities and differences which are present in the industry, while also highlighting its social impact.
