<em>Australian Gin: The Book</em>

Australian Gin: The Book explores the definition of gin, the history of Australian gin, descriptions of different gin styles, distilling from an insider’s view and how to enjoy gin and support Australian distillers. The book provides information about 80 Australian distilleries, with a list of newcomers to the gin industry.

The book provides information about Australian distillers’ experiments with complex flavours, ageing and hybrid styles like Shiraz gin and green ant gin. Author David Box and contributors Jon Lark (KI Spirits), Cameron Mackenzie (Four Pillars), Phillip Jones (The Martini Whisperer), Dave Irwin and Matt Argus (Patient Wolf) explore the world of gin, answering questions like, what exactly is gin?

Each chapter covers subjects such as: the history of Australian gin, different gin styles, starting a distillery, the issues faced by distilleries and how to enjoy gin. The book is available from all good book retailers and most distillery cellar doors from late November.
