A Field Guide to Whisky by Hans Offringa

Touted as “a must” for all whisky lovers, this book is a one-stop guide with hundreds of insider tips and trivia for the whisky connoisseur. Written by whisky expert Hans Offring, the hardback explores the spirit’s base ingredients, how it’s made, the difference between malt, scotch, Bourbon and rye, how whisky gets its flavour, whisky trends around the world and which big name brands deserve their reputation.

Its black and gold cover bears a striking resemblance to Tennessee whiskey brand Jack Daniel’s and contains a chapter dedicated to the man behind the brand and his legacy. Hoping to make an expert out of amateur enthusiasts, the beautifully bound tome features an array of glossy colour images, maps, and tips on the best bars to find a damn fine dram.
