Win a signed copy of The Curious Bartender's Gin Palace by Tristan Stephenson

Reader Treats

Tristan Stephenson aka The Curious Bartender is a master mixologist (and award-winning bar operator, bartender, barista, chef, journalist, and bestselling author).

We’ve one (signed!) copy of his most recent GIN book, The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace, to give away to a lucky reader. Perfect for reference ahead of the festive season, or get one more thing on your present list ticked off for a drinks-loving friend.

 

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 front of the book offers an original look at the role that botanicals play in gin, as well as comprehensive gin history lesson – from its origins as a medicinal curative to its graduation as the poster child of the cocktail revolution – before the cocktail recipes begin!

Tristan was head bartender at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall before co-founding eight award winning bars and restaurants in London, Bristol and Cornwall (including Muddy Cornwall fave The Rum Bar) and Black Rock whisky bar in London which, as of 2019, won CLASS Magazine’s coveted Best Specialist Bar Award for three consecutive years.
