Description
The British LibrarySave when you buy both Philosophies of wine & gin
A fun and fascinating history of a favourite tipple. Full of tantalising trivia, lesser-known characters and amusing anecdotes. 'The Philosophy of Gin' traces the history of the drink which has been sipped on a thousand verandas and, in more recent times, become a flavouring experiment. Considers the dramatic rise and fall in the fortunes of gin; from its origins in Holland as ‘Dutch courage’; its medicinal roots; and the dangers of too much of a good thing in Hogarth’s ‘Gin Lane’. Plus flavour pairings and tasting notes.
