Joseph Piercy's pocket-sized volume is, quite simply, an utter delight. The book bills itself as 'a guide to weird and wonderful spirits and liqueurs', and indeed features a plethora of esoteric beverages. It's unlikely even the most learned, well-travelled connoisseur will have encountered all the drinks detailed here, each with relevant history, flavour notes, recipes and offbeat trivia.
Entries are listed, in highly opinionated voice, by country of origin, roving from the Balkans to South Africa via Japan and Mexico. There's a mischievous tone to Piercy's narrative- one imagines the author at the bar, glass in hand and a twinkle in his eye.
Thus, we find Drambuie nestled in amongst Ly Shan, Vana Tallinn and Patxaran- but even for the most well-known, the book delivers a refreshing appraisal peppered with anecdotes.
