It is not just the Scots who have mastered the art of producing this delectable drink. 1001 Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die takes you on a fascinating global whisky tour - from Scotland and Ireland through North America, Japan, India, and the rest of the world, providing insight into the 1001 best and most exciting whiskies ever made - from the established classics, such as Scotland's Springbank, to emerging greats from Japan.

    Give your hangover the boot with 100 recipes for breakfast hunger-busters, healthy smoothies, hair of the dog cocktails, sweet treats and more.

    Hangovers, we all handle them differently - some prefer to face the pain head on while others like to hide under the covers, letting out the occasional pathetic moan and praying it will all be over soon. But whatever your preferred course of action, no doubt food and drink will play a key part in your recovery. And that's where 101 HANGOVER RECIPES comes in. Containing a plethora of ideas for beating away the booze that's plaguing your system, find ideas for everything from breakfast treats like the triple chocolate pancakes and the super-quick brunch quesadilla to belly-stuffing comfort food for when you finally muster the energy to drag yourself from the sofa to the kitchen.

    All types of boozehounds are catered for, from lightweight lushes to heavy hitters, so you're guaranteed to find the perfect drink or dish to suit your mood. If you're a health-conscious sort who is keen to treat your body like a temple (albeit one that's been attacked by a marauding horde of Mexican tequila shots and Bavarian Jägerbombs) you will find recipes for superfood salads and re-energizing juice drinks.

    If you're more inclined to wallow in your bed, swearing on your mother's life that you'll never so much as look at a bottle of vodka again, we have quick fixes that minimize the time spent cooking and maximize your potential to fester in bed. And if you're keen to flip the bird to that woodpecker happily drilling into the centre of your skull you'll love the chapter on restorative hair of the dog cocktails that will have you back on your feet and necking beers like a legend in no time.

    Santé! The apéritif is back. Forget the crass cocktail – the chic apéritif is the choice of the discerning drinker. From the Latin aperire (‘to open’), an apéritif not only kick-starts the palate before eating but is the most delightful way to begin an evening.

    More and more people are falling for the charms of this light, refreshing and aromatic way of drinking, and bars dedicated to apéritifs are opening around the world. Characterised by their dryness, freshness and bitter flavours, many apéritifs are also low in alcohol, making them a perfect choice for health-conscious barflies.

    In Apéritif, acclaimed drinks writer Kate Hawkings romps through the history of how these drinks came into being across the great drinking nations of Europe and beyond. And after a look at the science of why these drinks work so well as appetisers, she peruses anything and everything that can be considered as an apéritif: what it is, what to look for and how best to drink it. From amaro to gin, through fino sherry to arak, Campari and Lillet, and with 50 suggested recipes or serving suggestions for each kind of booze, Apéritif encourages you to sit back, sip, and anticipate the pleasures that the evening holds.

    Serve drinks at home in style and bring the party to your guests from one of 20 beautifully themed and stylishly stocked bar carts.



    What's a party without a well-stocked (not to mention super-stylish) bar? Drinks trolleys are making a comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamour of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you're not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for pared-back parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office and even folding 1960s aluminium tea-lady trolleys can make quite the style statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the ideal height for mixing drinks, each style of cart or trolley lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your craft spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.
