Some could argue that Bartenders make drinks, while “Mixologists” have a fuller understanding of the history of spirits, flavor profiles and how to best serve them. Mixologists create innovation in cocktails and culture; while remembering the past. Regardless of what you call yourself, there is a need for greater understanding. This is not a recipe book or bartender “how to”. However, this is a guide to the world of Whisky and Whiskey. Ever wondered which spelling is correct…? Both! This book is for those who claim that Bourbon is only from Kentucky. Wrong! Or for those who want to know how a cigar is made, sizes, flavors and how to cut them. What’s the difference between Cognac & Armagnac? Now you’ll know. Can I pair food with Scotch? Now you’ll know. Which Spirit goes with my cigar? Now you’ll know.
