Présentation de l'éditeur :

Exploring their mantra of Drink Less but Drink Better , the Thinking Drinkers, celebrated drinks journalists Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham, have performed sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and the Soho Theatre in London. This book, inspired by their show, delves into the history and development of alcohol, from early Sumerian beer brewers to famous imbibers such as Van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, Norm from Cheers and John Wayne to Blackbeard and Dorothy Parker, to name but a few. There are fascinating facts and trivia on subjects such as the Three Martini Lunch , the origin of the word teetotal and some frankly weird shenanigans around the subject of absinthe! Chapter topics range from beer and cider to wine, whisky, fruit-based spirits, tequila, vodka, rum and gin, as well as liqueurs. Fun and quirky illustrations highlight celebrated drinks, characters, places in time and the drinks themselves, while McFarland and Sandham bring together the best of their well- informed and hugely entertaining writing in this handsome and covetable volume that is simply an imbiber s delight.
