MERCHANDISE: Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries
- Caddy Subscriber
The foremost expert on Canadian whisky, Davin de Kergommeaux, has a new book out with his writing partner Blair Phillips. The Difinitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries: The Portable Expert, delves into the growing world of Distillation in Canada. It features proviles of more than 200 distilleries, tasting notes from more than 125 whiskies and more than 50 classic and modern cocktail recipes.
"Two years ago we embarked on a journey to tell the incredible story of the most exciting and cutting-edge distilleries that are shaping Canada’s industry. The book is finally out today in what has become a weird, unnatural world no one could have predicted. While the days are getting longer and we are beginning to feel spring in the air, almost all non-essential businesses in Canada have closed. We are cheered though that despite adversity, almost all of Canada's distilleries have actively joined the effort to fight the pandemic.
"In writing this book, we have gotten to know many of these very distilleries, and we hope their stories and spirits found in this book might be a welcome distraction. And while we cannot visit these distilleries at the moment, our wish is that this book can give you a virtual distillery tour from coast-to-coast. We hope our tasting notes will guide you to new spirits that cannot be missed, many of which you can buy online, so you can then mix your bounty in distillery-specific cocktail recipes."
