High Spirits celebrates the world of fine spirits - single-malt scotches, small-batch bourbons, fine cognacs, liqueurs, and the clear spirits (gin, vodka, and others) - with a unique blend of practical information and entertaining anecdote. The book discusses how these spirits are made and which ones (in the author's unassailable opinion) are best. It describes both the role spirits have played in history as well as practicalities of bar setup and drink mixing. And it dispenses even measures of lore, illustrations, and good sense about these liquors in a supremely engaging way.
