Australian Gin: The Book

The world has gone mad for gin and Australia is no different. New distilleries are opening at such an astounding rate that no one has published a comprehensive book about Australian Gin, until now.

Australian Gin explores in depth, the definition of gin, the history of Australian gin, descriptions of different gin styles, distilling from an insiders view and most importantly, how to enjoy gin and support Australian distillers and their efforts to bring to us the fruits of their passion.

It is indeed the book all gin lovers have been waiting for!
