Top international reviews
The gins are listed alphabetically, with pictures of the bottles, so great for identification when out shopping or in a bar. The notes are well written and the descriptions (so far) have proved accurate.
Like Ian Buxton's companion book, "101 Whisky's to Try Before You Die", as well as what might be considered the obvious choices, he throws in some surprises which, with our experiences so far, are well worth investigating.
Very informative and well written.
I will be ordering another as a gift.
