Over the past decade, the cocktail culture has exploded across America. Bars and lounges have become the Broadway theater of mixology, with bartenders resurrecting classic pre-Prohibition cocktails and dazzling customers with their creations. Consumers, in turn, are recreating these cocktails at home, and spending unprecedented amounts on upscale bar gear. With more and more emphasis on quality ingredients, the number of small-batch spirits is increasing all the time, and craft distilling has become popular as an offshoot of the locavore movement. In Iconic Spirits, Mark Spivak, wine and spirits guru and host of the NPR show Uncorked!, explores the history and cultural significance of twelve iconic spirits and reveals how moonshine invented NASCAR; how gin almost toppled the British Empire; how a drink that tastes like castor oil flavored with tree bark became one of the sexiest things on earth; how cognac became the "it" drink of hip-hop culture, and much more. To top it all off, Spivak then offers the most tantalizing cocktail recipes from the era in which each spirit was invented.

"Beginning in ancient limestone bedrock, this history of Cognac sweeps through Roman times and the Dark and Middle Ages to the birth of an eau-de-vie toward the end of the sixteenth century. Kyle Jarrard then traces the drink's four-hundred-year struggle to dominate markets the world over - a challenge made all the more difficult by war-halted commerce, contraband, usurpation of the Cognac name, and business feuds fought across the Atlantic. He reveals how Cognac distillers weathered vineyard die-offs, the struggle through the world wars, and the unprecedented postwar boom. There's also the story of Gustav Klaebisch, a German lieutenant assigned to oversee Cognac's efforts during World War II, who protected the stocks from his own thirsty armies by creating a quota system - effectively preserving the brandy's future.".

Armagnac is France s premier brandy, not only because it was the first but also because it is the preference of true connoisseurs. And while armagnac is often compared to its closest relative Cognac, the two brandies are distinctly different. In this detailed study, Charles Neal takes us to Gascony, in the hidden backwoods of Southwestern France. All the factors that go into making a great Armagnac are explained, as are the differences between it and Cognac. Insights into blending and the use of permitted additives are fully discussed. Also included are profiles of the region s most influential négociants, objective tasting notes on their products, even information on how to match Armagnac with your favorite cigar. More important, however, is the focus on the region s real heart and soul, the producers of traditional Armagnac. Within their unrectified Armagnacs from a single year, subtle notes of prune, apricot, vanilla, spice and nuts converge to become heavenly. A deep, penetrating, natural sweetness of fruit remains on the palate for minutes, and when smelling the empty snifter the next day, one can be reminded of the memorable scent of un vrai Armagnac.

An Impetuous College Undergraduate ... A Nation at War ... A New Unit Seeking "Experienced Mountaineers ... Men of Good Physique ... Who Have Lived and Worked in the Mountains ... " Three letters of recommendation later, in early 1943, William Lowell Putnam joined what was to become the 10th Mountain Division, the first and only mountain warefare unit of the U.S. Army. Green Cognac: The Education of a Mountain Fighter is a superb account of the mountain and ski troops as seen from Putnam's often wry perspective. What transpired during the brief, eventful years of war is the story of Green Cognac, as told by one who was well acquainted with the mountains and mountaineering before he became a mountain fighter. Putnam applied this knowledge while serving in the infantry regiments of the 10th Mountain Division. The elite Mountain Troops were sent to break the German Gothic Line in the Apennine Mountains of Italy. Brilliantly led, they fought their way northward with magnificent dash, seizing control of ten mountain crests. Their determined drive broke the German resistance and brought on the first large-scale enemy surrender of World War II. Much celebrated and studied after the war for their striking success and spirit in the field, the Mountain Trrops presented an awe-inspiring picture of camaraderie and courage. From the bold ski-tropper concept, first suggested in 1940, to the final days of demobilization at the end of 1945, this is their story.
