The Spirit of Gin Book Giveaway! - CLOSED

Happy Weekend!  I've got a series of great Giveaways for you this holiday season, and I'm kicking it off with a signed copy of The Spirit of Gin - A Stirring Miscellany of the New Gin Revival by Matt Teacher.




This book is the go-to reference for all gin lovers this year.  It is essentially an encyclopedia of gin from the history, to different styles of gin (so confusing), to cocktail recipes, to an index of gin distillers and the sauce they produce.

 
This book is great for those of you who like to oogle at the back bar at all the different sparkling bottles and labels (like me) and who want to know what botanicals are used in all those gins without spending 5 hours in your local liquor store (which, I have been known to do).


Luckily for you, this weekend I have one copy to giveaway to a lucky reader.

I'm going to try something new this giveaway, and I'm going to host the contest on Instagram.  (If you hate this, please leave a comment below and I will remember for the other upcoming contests).

  1. I don't use Instagram. However, my favorite gin cocktail actually depends on the mood I'm in and the time of year. Last night it happened to be the Aviation. Guess it was the color. This last summer, sitting on the deck watching the sunset the favorite was my own creation, "Valley Rose" made with Nolet Gin and a couple of other items.
