The Drunken Botanist
The Plants That Create the World's Great DrinksAudiobook CD - 2013
Every great drink starts with a plant. Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley. Gin was born from a conifer shrub when a Dutch physician added oil of juniper to a clear spirit, believing that juniper berries would cure kidney disorders. This uncovers the enlightening botanical history and the science and chemistry of over 150 plants, flowers, trees, and fruits (and even one fungus).
