The Curious Bartender Gin. Another excellent book from the Curious Bartender Tristan Stephenson, this time looking at wonderful gin. The book covers gin's colourful history from herbal spirits and genever, through the Gin Craze of the 18th century and on to the immense success it's now enjoying. There are drinks to make too of course, as Tristan shares his Purl, Rickey and a Fruit Cup recipes.
- Gin Palace is the story of a road trip that took Tristan to over 60 gin distilleries across the UK, Europe and the USA. Each distillery Tristan visited is photographed and documented in painstaking detail, covering their individual history, unique production practices, and tasting notes of their products.
- The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace is the follow-up to master mixologist Tristan Stephenson’s hugely successful books, ‘The Curious Bartender’ and ‘The Curious Bartender: An Odyssey of Malt, Bourbon & Rye Whiskies’. Discover the extraordinary journey that gin has taken, from its origins in the Middle Ages as the herbal medicine.
- ‘The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace’ by Tristan Stephenson. ‘The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace’ is the third of four Curious Bartender Books. The first three are, ‘The Curious Bartender: The artistry and alchemy of creating the perfect cocktail’, ‘The Curious Bartender: An Odyssey of Malt, Bourbon & Rye Whiskies’ and my personal favorite The Curious Barista’s Guide to Coffee.

In 2009 he set up a consultancy company for the drinks industry, Fluid Movement. From there he went on to open critically acclaimed London bars The Worship Street Whistling Shop (decorated in steampunk Victoriana style) and Purl. Tristan currently lives in Cornwall. This is his fourth book for RPS.
I’ve been curious to read one of the growing series of Curious Bartender’s books. The first one was devoted to the craft of the cocktail, another is about whiskies and bourbon, this one on gin, and a Curious Barista’s Guide to Coffee, all by the same author, Tristan Stephenson. Mr Stephenson has obviously hit on a winning formula, with Rum Revolution out soon too.
The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace
For some reason I expected a regular-sized hardback but Gin Palace is a handsome and hefty coffee-table book that runs to 224 pages. It begins, not surprisingly, with a history of gin, and although I’ve read several histories of gin this one is an entertaining romp through the story of gin. It goes back to the very start of distilling, explains how gin developed, and the different styles which emerged. There are sections on medicinal juniper, the arrival of genever in the Netherlands, how it became a fashionable London drink, the story of gin palaces, how gin arrived in the USA and through to the modern gin renaissance around the world.
How Gin is Made
The next section explains how gin is made, covering many topics including the different methods of distilling, the botanicals, juniper, and pages on the most common botanicals such as cardamom, coriander, liquorice and angelica. There’s a section on how to classify the different styles of gin, too, so you can tell your London Dry from your Old Tom and your Plymouth Gin.
The Gin Tour
The next section is a big chunk of the book, the Gin Tour, in which the author travels the world in search of the best and most interesting gins. You can’t have a book about gin without writing about brands like Beefeater and Bombay Sapphire, but there are plenty of smaller distilleries, new distilleries and some surprises too. His travels around the gin world take him to places such as the Philippines, Spain, Sweden and France, with the longest sections not surprisingly devoted to gin-rich countries such as England, Scotland, the Netherlands and the USA. I’d like to have seen a section on the interesting gins coming out of Australia right now, though.
As the author’s a bartender you’d expect there to be a section on gin cocktails, and the book concludes with thirteen recipes, all accompanied by some great photography (by Addie Chinn). There are the classic recipes like the Dry Martini, the Gimlet and the Negroni. There’s a Salted Lime Rickey, instructions on how to make Sloe Gin, and for his Gin and Tonic recipe he makes it more interesting by explaining how to make your own tonic.

This is highly recommended for anyone even remotely interested in gin. Ps4 farming simulator 2020. It covers a lot of ground and does it in an entertaining fashion, which is never boring. I can’t wait to read more by the Curious Bartender now.
