    Gin: A Tasting Course by Anthony Gladman

    Just picked up a copy of this fabulous book ‘Gin: A Tasting Course’ by Anthony Gladman published by DK Living UK. It is beautifully laid out and informs the reader about how gin is made and some background on how flavour works. He has reviewed over 100 gins by taste (including Bertha) and it is one of the best books on gin we have come across.

    We are delighted the book features Bertha, thank you Anthony! In good company too.

    In all good bookshops now.
