A post-WWII quote reminds me of drinking in 2005.
Camper's Book: Tonic Water AKA G&T WTF is now available for sale.
Twelve new books out on beer, vermouth, bourbon, modern and mob-related history, gin, and jars.
I'll be a panelist at an event at the National Archives in Washington, DC. You know, the place where they keep the Declaration of Independence? That place. No big deal.
A ton of information about the history of vermouth (both sweet and dry kind of come from the same place) and its legal definitions in the European Union.
Notes from a talk about the History of Australian Bartending.
Here are a whole bunch of new drinking books already on shelves or available for pre-order online.
Peru is an exciting country for drink nerds like me, as it is the birthplace of the potato, pisco, and the cinchona tree that produces quinine for tonic water. I didn't realize until recently that it was also the birthplace of the international guano industry, perhaps the world's first exported industrial fertilizer.
I'll be giving a talk about the Gin & Tonic in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 28th at the Los Angeles Athletic Club as part of Golden State of Cocktails.
