Review:

Americans in droves are rediscovering the elegance and intriguing complexity of gin and vodka. They are imbued with light bodies, engaging and pervasive flavors, and aromas as crisp as celery. That Bob Emmons appreciates every nuance of gin and vodka is perfectly evident. This is a masterful work, a fitting tribute to these centuries-old spirits. -- Robert Plotkin, Principal, Barmedia

Information on two popular spirits gets distilled in The Book of Gins and Vodkas. This 248-page volume provides a history of the liquors, a discussion of production methods, and extensive tasting notes for premium and super-premium brands. There are also cocktail recipes, Martini lore and instructions for setting up gin and vodka tastings. -- Bon Appetit

Once again, spirits author Bob Emmons has squarely hit the mark with his terrific new book . . . Clear, succinct, and packed with the keen insights of not just a true believer, but an accomplished and reliable authority. The Book of Gins and Vodkas goes down as smoothly as a crisp Gin and Tonic on a sweltering July day. -- F. Paul Pacult, author of Kindred Spirits

Timely, well conceived and evenhanded. Emmons offers 'a little history' of each white spirit and explains how each is made. He describes the leading bands and offers cocktail recipes. Give this as a present along with a brace or two of martini glasses. -- William Rice, Chicago Tribune
