“…academic rigour imbued with a spirit of fun. This is a book about gin by two people who’ve made it their life – who drink it, make it, mix it, love it.” —Alice Lascelles, Financial Times drinks columnist

“Gin history, re-think what you thought was true and then it probably isn’t.  A Most Noble Water debunks myths, answers heaps of uncertainty and shines a light on underrespected writers.  It is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in Gin.”
—Sean Harrison, Master Distiller, Plymouth Gin

“History is rewritten. This book is sparking new sources of knowledge, inspiration and creativity. From the most expert personalities in our field, we couldn’t expect anything less.”
—Agostino Perrone, Head of Mixology, The Connaught Bar

AWARD-WINNING DRINKS HISTORIANS Anistatia Miller and Jared Brown have rewritten the origins of English gin in their latest book, A Most Noble Water: Revisiting the Origins of English Gin.

  • Did you know that German housewives were distilling a juniper berry spirit from a grain base in the mid-1400s?
  • Did you know the first recipe that resembled modern-day gin was produced in London during the 1600s and published in print in 1639?
  • Did you know there never were 'Eight Gin Acts' passed by Parliament in the 1700s?

You'll find the answers to these questions plus the actuals recipes that led to the evolution of what we now call English Gin in A Most Noble Water.
