A unique testament to Michael Jackson from the world's leading food and drinks writers. They are: Stephen Beaumont, Dave Broom, Ian Buxton, John Hansell, Julie Johnson, Charles MacLean, Hans Offringa, F Paul Pacult, Roger Protz, Lucy Saunders, Conrad Seidl, Carolyn Smagalski and Gavin D Smith.
The collaborators represent a roll of honour from food and drinks writing. All have donated an original essay - without fee - to Beer Hunter, Whisky Chaser. The print edition book was published on 27 March, 2009, to mark Jackson’s birth date. All proceeds from the publication, which was supported by leading single malt whisky The Glenlivet, were donated to the Parkinson’s Disease Society of the UK raising £12,000 for the cause.
Editor Ian Buxton, who conceived the project, said “Michael Jackson dominated the world of both beer and whisky writing for two decades and was hugely influential in both ‘real ale’ and single malt whisky. A complete generation of writers has cause to be grateful to him, not to mention countless brewers and distillers. This new book honours that legacy.”
He concludes: “If variety is what you celebrate in your choice of whisky or beer, then this is truly a joyous and eclectic celebration of a life well-lived. We have sought to honour Michael with words, fresh and new writing on beer and whisky that he would have enjoyed reading; that he would have respected; that he might even have wished to have written himself.”
