The Drunken Botanist

$22.95

Hardcover, 400 pages


Scotch emerged from barley, tequila from agave, rum from sugarcane, bourbon from corn. In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol over the centuries.
