The Thinking Drinkers are Ben McFarland and Tom Sandham, two alcohol experts who have embarked on a selfless mission to improve your liquid life. Their mantra? Drink less, drink better' Professional journalists with over 30 years of academic elbow-bending combined, the award-winning duo distil their drinks knowledge into this intoxicating armchair read, a cerebral sip through the culture of drink in its most fabulous fermented forms. The illuminating and amusing journey careers through the colourful agave fields of tequila and Wild West saloons of the USA, to the whisky wilderness of the Outer Hebrides, Gin's degenerate London lanes and the anarchic absinthe-addled avenues of France. Among the distinguished drinkers you'll meet along the way are Humphrey Bogart, Peter the Great, Mayahuel the Aztec Goddess, Jesus Christ, Hunter S Thompson and Vincent Van Gogh. Dedicated to more than 15 different kinds of drink, each chapter is steeped in extraordinary anecdotes, quirky historical facts, expert reccommendations and eye-catching illustrations, bringing together the people, the places and the past behind each illustrious beverage. Through this hugley entertaining and highly convivial companion for the enlightened imbiber, the Thinking Drinkers prove that, contrary to common perception, some of life's answers can, in fact, be located at the bottom of a glass.
