With an eye fixed for event, Wilson seeks out visceral stories on the resource of production—visiting fields of spiky agave in Jalisco, coming into the seriously and reverently-guarded Jägermeister herb room in Wolfenbüttel, and traveling to the French Alps to figure out if mustachioed males in berets rather handpick blossoms to make elderflower liqueur.
In addition, Boozehound deals greater than fifty drink recipes, from 3 riffs at the new york to cocktail-geek favorites just like the Aviation and the final word. those recipes are awarded along a number of opinionated essays that cherish the infrequent, discover the vague, dethrone the overvalued, and get to the bottom of the mysteries of style, developments, and terroir. via his far-flung, intrepid touring and tasting, Wilson exhibits us that maybe not anything else as entwined with the historical past of human tradition is kind of as a lot enjoyable as booze.
