Présentation de l'éditeur

Holy Smoke! It’s Mezcal! is being acclaimed by leading experts in the mezcal and spirits world: “An amazing accomplishment”, "For those of us that live and love mezcal, we finally have a book", “The best book on this beautiful artisan spirit”, and “A playful yet responsible thesis of the history, lore, and science that infuses every bottle”. Mezcal is finally being counted among the world’s leading beverages for its quality, complexity and authenticity. John McEvoy, the author of the outstanding blog Mezcal PhD (www.mezcalphd.com), pens his first book on this magical elixir. Holy Smoke! It’s Mezcal! is a passionate journey into everything you want to know about mezcal. Among other things, the author explores the history of mezcal and how it differs from tequila, the hand-crafted production process that has been handed down from generation to generation, the wide variety of agaves which are used to make mezcal and how each varietal can alter the flavor, all the mezcal brands found in the U.S., mezcal cocktails with over forty tasty recipes, and the differences between tequila, mezcal, pulque, bacanora, raicilla, sotol and more. Holy Smoke! is rich with photographs, diagrams, charts and details while maintaining a light-hearted and approachable tone throughout. Contributing to the polished style of the book is a top notch team including A-list food and spirits industry photographer Noah Fecks, renowned book designer Patty Fabricant, and former Associated Press editor Dave Ivey. Whether you are just becoming interested in this seductive spirit or are already a convert, this book is for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book! Funny, informative and interesting! 31 août 2014
Par B. Day - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is the best of all worlds! It's super informative, interesting and completely entertaining. Then throw in the cocktail recipes to boot! I highly recommend it. I knew a bit about mezcal before reading it, now I'm practically an expert (LOL!). The pictures are great and give an excellent view into how mezcal is made. It's a really fascinating spirit - who knew? The thing I liked most is that the book is not in the least bit pretentious - it's humorous and an easy read. The author clearly loves this stuff (that comes through in spades), but he can also laugh at himself. I think even people with no interest in mezcal would like it, just because it's interesting. I've already bought a couple more books as gifts. Here's an anecdote for you - I couldn't sleep one night so I thought I'd pick up where I left off in the book (chapter on varietals), thinking "well, that's a pretty dry subject, it'll put me right to sleep"....nope, it was so interesting that I kept on reading! Buy it, you won't regret it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why You Should Read This Book - and Drink Mezcal! 12 août 2014
Par dasypus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Well, I must say this is a wonderfully informative and entertaining book. Having been to Oaxaca and seen first-hand where many of these seductive brands are born, raised and produced - I believe the author has perfectly captured the essence of what mezcal is all about. It is everything that tequila is not - and more - because its soul is as free as Mother Nature can make it. John has managed to take the reader through the history of mezcal on a personal tour of the senses that does not stop in Oaxaca. It continues on to your local bar or mezcalaría and into your living room. The list of cocktails is amazing - if not dangerous (YUM)! Buy this book and you will know almost everything you need to know about mezcal. The only thing left to do - is drink it. Salud!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally. An excellent book on a very special topic. 6 septembre 2014
Par jerry the second - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought a book on mezcal maybe a year ago....and ended up throwing a hissy fit about it in my review. And, in my review I suggested that the authors of several well known and well received books on tequila should apply their skills to a book on mezcal. Well, that book is here. Finally. Thankfully. For those with a passing curiousity or those will a deep passion, this is the book you should buy. I've been to Oaxaca and been to several palenques. The author gets it right. Finally I now have something to show my friends. And for me an excellent reference source. Thank you, John.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you buy one mezcal book, it's gotta be this one! 16 juin 2014
Par Tom van den Bout - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The Mezcal PhD (aptly named) nailed this one. REALLY comprehensive, passionate, and educational. It has pretty much everything you'd want to know: history, botany, sustainability, sources, reviews, and few rocking cocktail recipes. All in a really fun read with wonderful pictures too.
I raise una jicara de tepeztate (nee, a whole flipping BOTTLE) to McEvoy and his great book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Just For Mezcal Drinkers 14 juin 2014
Par W. T. Kennedy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is an amazing book loaded with in depth chapters on all things mezcal from the history to the final bottle. For anyone interested in Mexican history and/or this marvelous cultural icon of Mexico, the book is a must read. Not only does the author lure you in with his passion and knowledge on the subject, but the beautiful pictures throughout the book make one feel a part of the many different methods of producing this exceptional product. With individual tastes moving towards farm to table and natural ingredients, mezcal hits that sweet spot. Oh don't want to forget to mention all those 40 cocktail recipes
