'Buxton has done it again: a cracking read. A novel and invaluable addition to any whisky library.' Charles MacLean'Ian Buxton is the perfect guide to the rapidly changing world of whisky. Can you afford to be without a copy of 101 Craft and World Whiskies?' Henry Jeffreys, author of Empire of Booze
Discover the exciting new world of craft distillers and whiskies from around the world in Ian Buxton's brilliant new addition to his 101 Whiskies series.
From Austria to Argentina and Norway to New Zealand, the world of whisky is expanding as we have never seen before. Distilleries as far away as Taiwan and as close to home as England are reinventing what whisky means - and an iconoclastic generation of boutique, craft distillers are challenging previous orthodoxies and teasing drinkers with their exciting new styles and radical releases.
101 Craft & World Whiskies to Try Before You Die is an up-to-the-minute guide from best-selling whisky commentator Ian Buxton, author of the popular 101 Whiskies series, and the first independent assessment of this global drinks revolution.
Guaranteed to appeal equally to whisky aficionados and new enthusiasts in search of a trusty and well-informed guide, Ian Buxton's wonderful new handbook is delivered in his trademark irreverent and trenchant style. There's a whole world of whisky to be discovered, free of bagpipes and heather and far from leather-clad fireside armchairs, that's overturning tradition.
Taken neat or over ice, 101 Craft & World Whiskies will blow the cobwebs off your dram.
An excellent source for discovering whiskies beyond the obvious and usual suspects. The book covers some of the well-known whisky-producing countries (such as Scotland, the USA, and Canada) as well as some that may come as a surprise to you (for example, Australia, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, and South Africa). - Whisky Distilled
