Tipsy

Clare Burder

Affirm Press

 

Ah, not sure what your poison is but navigating the world of tipples can prove challenging territory, specifically if one is set in one’s ways. No matter what your go-to is, there have for sure been instances where ignorance has been publicly exposed – be it via odd food / drink pairings or a lack of knowledge as to what a drink is composed off or where it comes from.

In a world that gets more complex and overwhelming when it comes to liquid delectable goods, the vessels they are consumed with and the range of options in which they are presented, a compact book like Tipsy comes in handy for the novice.

In essence, the book is an extensive cheat sheet with short cuts and easy-to-comprehend explanations and background info without getting lost in granular detail.

Now, given that, it will not make you a master of any of the topics it covers – from beers via wines to spirits – but it will aid to give general directions and assistance that is based on research and the extensive knowledge of industry professionals.

With Clare Burder being not only clearly passionate about drinking but her craft having been honed as the lady looking after everything related to sake and wine programs for the alcohol related education system The Humble Tumbler as well as being someone who is actively involved in wine production, she is predestined to give sound advice.

Illustrated in an appealing manner, this nifty book does not only serve as a foundation but is a fun and inspiring launchpad to explore new territory – be it as a current teetotaller or a booze hound that has yet to get his head around not yet tried alcoholica.
