Rebellious Spirits: The Illicit History of Booze in Britain, by Ruth Ball

Chemist, founder of Alchemist Dreams, and Global Spirits Master judge, Ruth Ball takes the reader on a historic journey through the underbelly of spirits production in the UK. From the sale of gin through pipes in London back alleys, picking up smuggled booze on Cornish beaches or whisky running during the Blitz, this book is packed with the untold stories of the rebellious folk who made the UK drinks industry what it is today through their under-the-radar, illicit activities. Accompanied by historic recipes and their modern interpretations by leading bartenders, Rebellious Spirits is a fascinating insight into the heritage of British booze production.

Rebellious Spirits: The Illicit History of Booze in Britain is published by Elliott & Thompson and available now at £14.99.
