Advance Praise for The Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries
“To call Davin de Kergommeaux the soul of Canadian whisky is an understatement—he is its guide, its historian, and its leading advocate. Canadian Whisky is a book every serious drinker already has on the shelf. Now comes The Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries, with Blair Phillips, as astounding in its breadth of coverage as its depth of insight. Make room in your library, spirits fans: this is a must-own book.”
—Clay Risen, author of American Whiskey, Bourbon and Rye and Single Malt
“The Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries is a beautiful, thoroughly researched and thoughtfully presented homage to the hard working people who have brought the spirits movement to life. Find a comfortable chair, fill a glass with your favourite Canadian spirit, eat your poutine with a fork so you don’t mess up these nice pages, and take a cross-country trek through the pages of this book. If you’re not thirsty, you soon will be.”
—Zane Lamprey, host of Three Sheets, Drinking Made Easy, Chug, and Four Sheets
“Davin de Kergommeaux taught me just about everything I know about distilling across Canada, and anyone who doesn’t immediately dive into his expert tome and devour every morsel of insight Davin and co-author Blair Phillips are offering must have something against drinking the good stuff—not to mention the very concept of learning.”
—Jeff Cioletti, editor of Craft Spirits
“The Definitive Guide to Canadian Distilleries accurately brings to life many of the colourful characters, places and bottles I’ve been lucky to encounter. Proving that knowing your Canadian small-batch spirits is no longer just an insider’s game, Davin de Kergommeaux and Blair Phillips have created a fun, easy-to-read and cocktail-friendly guide that everyone from mixologists to casual sippers need to put behind the bar.”
—Charlene Rooke, drinks journalist, educator and judge
