Based on the fully updated and revised edition of his award-winning Canadian Whisky, Davin guides your journey across Canada and back through time to discover the story of this unique spirit. The story begins with the substance of Canadian whisky—grains, water, and wood—and details the process of how it’s made and how to taste it. He traces the fascinating history of the country’s major distilleries and key visionaries, and introduces the present-day players—big and small—who are shaping the industry through both tradition and innovation. Davin de Kergommeaux is independent whisky expert, who has been writing about, talking about, and teaching about whisky for two decades. His new book, Canadian Whisky: The New Portable Edition, second edition, will be published in October 2017 on the Appetite by Random House imprint. Davin is the founder and chairperson of the Canadian Whisky Awards, and publishes comprehensive notes about Canadian whiskies on canadianwhisky.org. He lives in Canada and writes full time.
