Presenting the most up-to-date illustrated guide to cognac! Here is the intriguing history of this delicious spirit, and a discussion of its increasing prominence in today’s markets. The first part explores the intricate and diverse methods of producing cognac, and tells the extraordinary story of a brandy-producing region that fought to establish its own name and place. The second section describes how to get the most enjoyment out of drinking this superb liquor, and offers a selection of cocktail recipes. There is also advice on choosing the perfect cognac glass, matching different ages and styles to your personal taste, and even pairing a glass with a fine cigar. A directory—illustrated with cognac labels—profiles more than 100 top varieties, and provides details on the producer plus the author’s own tasting notes.
Nicholas Faith’s first wine book, The Winemasters, was published in 1978 and won the André Simon award. He is the author of Mitchell Beazley’s Classic Wine Library Cognac, which won the Gourmand Best Spirit Book 2004, as well as other well-received works on Champagne and on major Bordeaux châteaux.

Review:

"A well-written, informative page-turner that's definitely worth the investment." - Jancis Robinson "This book is the most up to date literature that can be found about cognac; the drink and the region, and certainly makes for a 'must read' for anyone who pays homage to the wonder that is eaux-de-vie." - CognacExpert.com "If you're looking to understand the world of cognac this is one book worth investing in." - diffordsguide.com On previous editions of Cognac "Combines history, geography, human interest, business, marketing, controversy and of course cognac the drink in an account that is racy, witty and entirely without pomposity." - Judges of the Deinhard/Wine Magazine award "This season's stand out is Cognac ... Faith artfully demonstrates how the history, geography, sociobiology, politics and economics of the town come together." - New York Times "Here, one feels, is a wine journalist who is prepared to probe beneath the surface." - Wine & Spirit "His evocation of the past is as convincing as his judgment on the present." - The Times "An imaginative and well-researched account of cognac ... a jolly good read it certainly is." - The Independent
