Free download The Book of Gin Richard Barnett Ê 2 Summary Summary Ö The Book of Gin Æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free S In the early twentieth century the illicit cocktail culture of prohibition made gin often dangerous bathtub gin fashionable again And today with the growth of smallbatch distilling gin has once again made a comebackWide ranging impeccably researched and packed with illuminating stories The Book of Gin is lively and fascinating an indispensible history of a complex and notorious dri. My favorite drink is an ice cold gin martini so when I came upon this book about gin I just had to read itLet me start off by saying I d give the first half of this book three stars and the last half five I found the beginning while containing uantities of historical information about gin to be repetitive dull and long winded There are some interesting facts about gin here including its early use in medicine an ongoing battle between beer and gin a class issue of gin verses wine and a love hate battle with government forces but they are lost among the verbiageThis book gets much interesting when it reaches the history of gin from the 1900 s Here we have information about the prohibition forces both in the US and Britain the resurgence of gin in speakeasies the development of the cocktail party how martinis became popular the waning of interest in gin in the 1980s and the resurgence in the past few decadesPersonally I have a long history with gin As a child of the sixties martinis felt way too bourgeois and so I chose as my dance partner Jack and Ginger sweet Kentucky Bourbon mixed with sour tang of ginger ale Then President Carter came along and attacked the three martini lunch As many sons do I had a long love hate relationship with my father and he drank gin martinis Fortunately through years of hard work I overcame all of this so that now I not only drink martinis with great enjoyment but have begun infusing my own gin creationsMany people think of martinis as British thanks largely to the James Bond movies Barnett counters by citing Barnaby Conrad who described the martini as an embodiment of American history at its most magnificently diverse Dutch and English gin mixed with French vermouth and served with Mediterranean olives German Jewish pickled onions or Caribbean lemons While British Dry Gin is currently popular gin s original homeland was the Netherlands Here in the 1500s Jenever gin was used medicinally and by the 1600s developed into a popular drink Perhaps oversimplified gin is a spirit such as vodka with the addition of juniper berries Juniper was long used medicinally as was alcohol so putting the two together in retrospect seems an obvious ideaIn its modern history along with juniper gin reuires the addition of botanicals such as coriander angelica root licorice orange peel cardamom and many others With the emergence of micro distilleries I have tasted gins with only fresh apple added to the juniper up to gins with over twenty different botanicals 1988 saw the appearance of Bombay Sapphire which has become my personal commercial favorite However when given the opportunity during my travels I will try each and every secret recipe small local distilleries come up with According to Barnett now is the best time in the last five centuries to be drinking gin I couldn t agree with him
