Gin: The Manual by Dave Broom
Dave Broom’s new tome Gin: The Manual is a great read and a must have in your gin library. Merging history, practical information, tasting notes on a substantial array of brands as well as a few cocktails, the book is complete and provides a holistic insight into Gin as a spirit. It is an excellent gin book that befits Broom's status as an iconic drinks writer.
Broom’s prose is clear to follow and a careful mix of personal sentiment matched by pragmatic notes make it easy to relate to. This combination makes it one of the best “general” gin books available to buy as it is so much more than just naming brands and accompanying them with imagery and basic information.
