Lately, gin seems to be more fashionable here in Beerstralia; so much so, we have our own distilleries. And the stuff they put out don’t taste like Granny May Clampett’s rheumatiz medicine neither. So I was pretty keen to read Aaron Knoll’s latest contribution to Ginworld – "Gin: The Art and Craft of the Artisan Revival, In 300 Distillations". Holy crap! This guy tasted 300 different gins and still had enough brain cells left to write a book. A bloody good book too. Aaron is my hero. In fact, he ...more

Let me get the nitpicks out of the way: it was shockingly British coming from a Queens-based, Buffalo-born writer*. Probably as a result of this, there were a few moments when I disagreed with the publisher's copy editor as to comma placement.

Informative, interesting, and has inspired me to write a 'gin hit list' based on the tasting notes.

I fell in love with gin at a bar in Buffalo, quarter to last call on a cold winter night. The Gin was Martin Miller's, and it was love at first sip. Aaron has been writing about and covering The Gin Renaissance since the late 00's.

Since then he's written two books on the topic, including the 2015, Gin: The Art and Craft of the Artisan Revival with Quarto (which as of 2017 has now been published i
