Explore the exciting world of spirits with Lonely Planet. Featuring the best distilleries and bars in over 30 countries, we’ll tell you where to go and what to taste – from gin, bourbon and whisky to vodka, cachaca, tequila and more. Includes unmissable regional drinks from South Africa, Canada, the USA, Mexico, Japan, Indonesia, France, Italy, the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
Within each of the 33 countries in Lonely Planet’s Global Distillery Tour, we’ve organised the distilleries alphabetically by region. Each distillery has a suggested must-try drink or tasting experience and also recommended local sights so you can explore the local area in between tasting sessions.
We’ve also included bars that are best-in-class for their selection of one particular drink, such as arak in Lebanon or tuak in Malaysia. At the back of the book, you’ll find a section dedicated to cocktails: our take on the best mixology magic in the world, and the bars that serve them. Contributions come from specialist spirit reviewers, writers and bloggers.
