Description
 
Salvatore Calabrese (au). Cognac is the finest distilled spirit in the world. Its history has evolved against a fascinating backdrop of sin & seduction. Politics & intrigue between cognac-producing families have, over the centuries, weaved a rich tapestry of controversy. Cognac has known tragedy & triumph, such as in the late 1870s when a bug called Phylloxera vastatrix ate its way through the vineyards of the cognac region, or when a number of extraordinary cases of fraud led to the stringent production controls that now guard the drink’s good name. This beautifully illustrated volume relates a passionate & contemporary story of a traditional spirit with an intriguing past. The book unfolds, decade by decade, the history, secrets & untold tales surrounding the world’s most noble drink.
