"Spirit of the Cane is truly essential reading for anyone with an interest in cocktail or spirits history. However, as a historical book in its own right, there is a lot to drink in as well."—Amanda Schuster, Alcoholprofessor.com
Bloggat om Spirit of the Cane
Sipsmith Master Distiller Jared Brown made his first spirits at age ten after reading that early American colonists froze cider and lifted out the ice to concentrate the alcohol. As an adult (after a degree in hospitality from NYU, five years in operations at the Essex House Hotel and a few good bartending jobs) Jared's fascination with the spirits world has gone well beyond idle fancy. Developing a gin formula for the first micro distillery restaurant in the USA, in 1998, led to more diverse projects. He crafted, in 2002, the formulation of Heavy Water Vodka in Norway. That was immediately followed by consultancy work for a Vietnamese ruou (rice vodka) in 2005 and work on tasting panels for Beefeater 24 and No. 3 before crafting Sipsmith's award-winning formula.
He has judged a number major drinks competitions in the past decade, including the Havana Club Cocktail Grand Prix, Bols Around the World, Chivas Masters, and Beefeater 24.
With his wife Anistatia Miller, he has written more than 30 books including the world's best-selling book on the king of cocktails, Shaken Not Stirred: A Celebration of the Martini. Recipients of the 2011 IWSC Communicators of the Year Award, the couple wrote the award-winning two-volume tome, Spiritous Journey: A History of Drink as well as The Mixelllany Guide to Vermouth & Other Apritifs and Cuban Cocktails.
He was a co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail and is former co-director of Exposition Universelle des Vins et Spiritueux. Brown lives in the Cotswolds where he maintains a 1200+ volume collection of books on drink plus a research garden of drink and cocktail botanicals. Drinks historian and publisher Anistatia Miller is co-author along with her husband Jared Brown of a few dozen books on spirits and drinks, including the world's best-selling book on the king of cocktails, Shaken Not Stirred: A Celebration of the Martini. Recipients of the 2016 IMBIBE Magazine Personality of the Year Award for Industry Legends as well as the 2011 IWSC Communicators of the Year Award, the couple wrote the award-winning two-volume tome, Spirituous Journey: A History of Drink, tracing alcoholic beverages from 7000BC to the 20th century. Other titles include The Mixellany Guide to Vermouth and Other Apritifs, Champagne Cocktails, and Cuban Cocktails.
Miller was a co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail in New Orleans and is former co-director of Exposition Universelle des Vins et Spiritueux in southern France. She serves as curator of the EUVS Digital Collection (www.euvslibrary.com), a free online library of vintage cocktail and drinks books dating back to the 1750s. Miller organises and hosts the International Havana Club Cocktail Grand Prix in Havana, Cuba.
She lives in the Cotswolds with her husband and cat where she maintains a 1200+ volume collection of books on drink plus a research garden of drink and cocktail botanicals in addition to chickens and quail.
