Few if any alcoholic drinks have the dramatic and multifaceted history of gin. It has served as a crucial medicine, a form of escapism, an inspiration for satirical art, and a source for the phrase ‘Dutch courage’.

Every word counts with Jane – she manages to distil huge amounts of historical and scientific detail into very entertaining and pithy prose, bringing alive hundreds of years of history. I also thought I knew everything there was to know about gin – and her book has proved me wrong. Jane’s tone of voice is full of energy, enthusiasm and the passion to spread knowledge in a witty and engaging way – her writing is a delight.

Enrique Pena, Distiller at Vánagandr Destilerías
