What could possibly beat a cool pint of beer or a glass of wine at your favorite bar? The answer is: home-brewed beer or your very own brand of wine. With this, the twelfth in the River Cottage Handbook series, the inimitable John Wright shows exactly how easy it is to get started. You don't need lots of space to make alcohol at home, and if you follow the simple instructions, you won't be faced with exploding bottles. But don't forget, it's all about experimentation and finding out what works for you.

Booze is divided by alcohol type, from beer, cider, and wine to herbal spirits and fruit liqueurs. Each section starts with an introduction to the basic techniques, methods, and other useful information, before giving recipes for delicious beverages like rhubarb wine, sparkling elderflower wine, mead, cherry plum wine, orange beer, lager, real ginger beer, sweet cider, zubrovka vodka, amber spirits, rose infusions, blackberry whiskey, pomegranate rum, chestnut liqueur, mulled cider, and there's even a hangover cure thrown in for good measure.

With an introduction from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and full-color photographs as well as illustrations, Booze is a home-brewer's book with a kick.
