'Really fun and interesting with lots to glean from every page. This book is all about the pleasures of raising a glass. It sets about questioning the myths and science of taste in a simple, fun yet authoritative way. We all have our favourite tipple and are creatures of habit but this book tells you what to try next and why... cheers !' Michel Roux Jr
Pre-order The Alcorithm, the unique guide that uses flavour algorithms to reveal the drinks you'll love, written by award-winning drinks expert and columnist for The Metro, Rob Buckhaven.
When it comes to choosing from a wine list or pouring ourselves a pint, it's all too easy to play it safe and stick to what we know. Yet there's a whole universe of incredible wine, beer, spirits and cocktails just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed if only we can step outside that comfort zone. This book will show you how.
Using the algorithm 'If you like this, you'll love that', this informative guide will lead you by the taste buds, using your existing favourite drinks and flavours to reveal numerous other varieties that will also suit your palate. Fan of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc? Try Sancerre for similar grassy notes. Partial to Vintage Champagne? Believe it or not, you may also like a Brown Porter. Those who enjoy Scotch Single Malt Whisky should give a Californian Pinot Noir a go, while a preference for Pornstar Martinis suggests you'll also be fond of Japanese Sake.
Exploring the gamut of flavour styles, from floral and fruity to smoky and spicy, then showcasing all the drinks in which you can find them, from wine, beer, cider, tequila and vodka through to tea, coffee, mixers and everything in between, including 40 classic cocktail recipes, The Alcorithm is your go-to drinks guide powered entirely by your personal preferences. You'll never drink the same way again.
