Partaking of a post-prandial drink is no longer regarded as an exclusively male preserve. Now it is seen as the icing on the cake, an extra special treat with which to round off an enjoyable meal. But what to offer? Brandy, port, grappa, Madeira? And what is the difference between them? Drinks expert Andrew Jefford, columnist in The Times, The Guardian and many magazines, has written this book with just those questions in mind. From exploring the history of after dinner drinks to the range of spirits currently available: apple-based Calvados, grape-based Marc, and - surprisingly - beer-based Scotch. Racier spirits such as tequila and rum feature too, offering a modern-day alternative and extending the scope of the preconceived whisky/brandy/port options. Intelligently written and infinitely informative, this is a must for all connoisseurs of fine drinks and will help to make that special dinner party so much more memorable. - Lucy Watson
