Editor's Pick: "1001 Whiskies You Must Taste Before You Die"

An intoxicating guide to the lush life

1001 whiskeys!

I’m southern. And a whiskey girl at heart. (Contrary to popular belief, ladies love brown liquor, too.)

So when a copy of Dominic Roskrow’s liquor anthology arrived on my desk, I literally salivated at the sight.

Crisp bottle photographs, old-school advertisements, and a healthy blend of rye, bourbon, and emerging trend knowledge make for one heady read. Between tasting notes and distillery tours, Roskrow’s liquor and food industry friends from around the globe weigh in on topics like 18th-century United Kingdom label feuds and futuristic techniques emanating from (where else?) Japan.

I thought about gifting it to my father for the upcoming holiday. But I’m reserving this for my personal shelf. — Tiffany, Everywhere editor
