9781468138344: Swig Knowledge: The blog turned into a book.

I have a passion to travel, but what do you do when you can't get away? This is my journey to "get away" and write while staying at home. I took the time to educate myself and readers on the love of booze and all its glory. What started as a way to kill time became quite an adventure. After writing my first book (The Right to Release: A Trail of Empty Bottles Across Europe), I needed to find a creative outlet during a return stint to the restaurant Biz after traveling through 42 cities in Europe for 80 days. The outcome was a blog called Swig Knowledge. It served as a way for me to “travel” and learn without leaving the country again. At first, I didn’t know if anyone was following, but at the end of one year of blogging about liquor, beer, and wine from all over the Globe, Swig Knowledge has over 4,500 followers in over 100 countries throughout the World. I hope you enjoy the 2011 version of Swig Knowledge and always know what you drink.

About the Author:

Cole Higgison is a ninth generation Washingtonian - yes, born and raised in Washington, DC. Mr. Higgison has spent over 20 years in the restaurant and hospitality businesses which include event management.

Mr. Higgison was the head buyer at the historic and prestigious Old Ebbitt Grill in Washington, DC. During his tenure, he was in charge of a 150 bottle wine list which contributed to $11 million in annual revenue.
