A very busy week at work, combined with a unusually hectic weekend, has unfortunately meant this site has been somewhat neglected over the past week or so. However, I have plenty of new stuff to talk about over the next few days, including a whole bunch of new spirits I have recently purchased, and my almost religious experience with the spectacular Aviation cocktail.
Anyway, in a very old-school weblog way, I just wanted to point out a few interesting links I’ve come across. The first is a fantastic set of videos featuring Gary Regan, of Joy of Mixology fame, at the Bar06 event in London. Very interesting and informative, even if poor Gary sounds like he had a few too many the night before!
Secondly, the first edition of diffordsguide digital was published today. I’ve been a big fan of Simon Difford’s books since I purchased volume five of Difford’s Guide to Cocktails, which is in my opinion one of the best cocktail recipe books around. There also used to be a quarterly guide, each of which consisted of one quarter of the recipe book, plus bar reviews, industry news etc.
These have sadly been discontinued, but this digital guide takes over, and while I will miss being able to read it on the train, you can’t argue with free! If you want to subscribe to the guide, you can simply email simon, stating your email address, name and country.
