101 World Whiskies To Try Before You Die is the companion guide to 2010's 101 Whiskies To Try Before You Die. Ian Buxton again eschews the obvious whiskies and recommends another 101 whiskies that he believes every whisky lover should taste. In Ian Buxton's new collection of whisky recommendations he has cast his net wider. He includes not only whiskies from the established whisky-producing countries, but also many newcomers. The book includes whiskies from Austria, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, England, India, Ireland, Japan, The Netherlands, Scotland, Taiwan, USA and Wales. All the whiskies included are both affordable and accessible. Ian Buxton does not believe in collecting whiskies or investing in whisky. He believes in tasting and enjoying the huge range of whiskies that are available. The book includes single malts and blends - and provacatively a few renegade suggestions that are bound to offend purists.

Rum, once the poor relation of the spirit world, has undergone a revival and is no longer seen just as the preferred tipple for tipsy pirates. The craft drinks movement has certainly stimulated the rum world, with high numbers of new artisan rum brands launching around the world in the last few years. The rise of the rum cocktails is another successful trend, with the popularity of mojitos and mai tai contributing greatly in the growth and development of the rum market.Ian Buxton, the UK's No.1 bestselling author on spirits, takes us on a tour of the different colours, flavours, creation methods and characteristics, and makes his pick of the best rums in the world. Whether you like your rum in cocktails, or prefer to sip it neat, this is the only book on rum you will ever need.

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."

A revised edition of the 1930 Scottish classic guide, edited by the international bestselling author of 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die. This is—in the opinion of many whisky writers and experts—the finest whisky book ever written. It is certainly the first written from the point of view of the consumer and is thus historically significant. But more than that, poetic and polemic in style and with its emphasis on the importance of single malt whisky and its concern to protect and inform the consumer, it remains fresh and relevant to the interests of today’s whisky drinker. It is a remarkably prophetic book, and with Ian Buxton’s shrewd commentary and analysis, combined for the first time with period illustrations, it is brought bang up to date for today’s generations of whisky aficionados. “The finest whisky book ever.” —Dave Broom “This is a small volume but there are plenty who will love it. It is airy, witty, full of sound knowledge and practical wisdom.” —The New York Times “If I could take only one whisky book to a desert island it would be Aeneas MacDonald's Whisky.” —Charles MacLean “Among the generous pour of publishings to please whisky fans, one stand-out is a long-awaited new edition of Whisky by Aeneas MacDonald . . . . [h]is literary musings on matters of malt and more, first published in 1930, are widely hailed as among the best writing on the subject. The new edition features period illustrations and an appreciation by writer Ian Buxton, who was instrumental in bringing the book to the masses.” —The Herald (UK)
