Gin & tonic, the drink of the eighties, is more fashionable than ever before. Bars, clubs, gin menus in restaurants - gin is everywhere. This beautifully compiled book is an essential guide for gin lovers in search of their own original take on this wonderfully complex drink. Richly illustrated, it covers the history of gin, the gin families with their distinct characteristics and distilled flavors, and the exciting, more recent developments in the marketing, the bottling and packaging of gin which is increasingly quirky, artistic and original. There is an overview of some of the smartest places to drink and discover a world of gin; hip and very cool. Nowadays there are over 150 sorts of gin and 20 sorts of tonic water. Beyond 'ice and a slice', how do you put together the perfect gin and tonic, from the amazing array of new infusions? What are the flavors and textures in food that best accompany this very particular drink? With food-pairing ideas and recipes to create at home...find your favorite glass, crack the ice and indulge!
