Canadian Whisky ‘The Portable Expert’ Now In Paperback – Canadian Whisky News

This Gourmand Book Award- and IACP Award-winning book takes readers on a journey through the first systematic presentation of Canadian whisky ever published: how it’s made, who makes it, why it tastes the way it does, its history, and the rich, centuries-old folklore surrounding it.

Join whisky authority Davin de Kergommeaux on a pan-Canadian journey from British Columbia to Nova Scotia, celebrating the diversity of Canada’s unique spirit. With his conversational and accessible tutelage, de Kergommeaux offers readers a carefully researched, reliable, and authoritative guide to Canadian whisky that is, quite simply, not available anywhere else. Not only a book describing the history and culture of the spirit,
Canadian Whisky: The Portable Expert is also an informed exploration of taste. For the first time, whisky consumers – experts and novices alike – can approach Canadian whisky with a connoisseur’s appreciation of its rich subtleties.

What others say about the book:

“This is an important time for Canadian whisky and this is an important book which isn’t just a story of a drink, but a story of Canada itself. It makes you want to get a bottle and a glass, pour yourself a stiff one, sit back and dive in. I’d suggest you do exactly that.”
- Dave Broom, author of The World Atlas of Whisky and Whisky The Manual

“De Kergommeaux ably demonstrates that Canadian whisky is a far more interesting and well-crafted spirit than it’s given credit for being”
- David Wondrich drinks writer for Esquire Magazine and author of Punch, and Imbibe.
