Podcast: The Spirits Special with Richard Godwin and Sipsmith

In a special podcast we visit the Sipsmith distillery with Richard Godwin, author of The Spirits, to discover first of all how gin is made, before heading back to the studio and mixing it with a few simple ingredients to create classic cocktails. Can we get through the whole programme without slurring our words?

Richard Godwin – The Spirits

Of all the skills you might acquire in life, the ability to make a good cocktail will never be a waste of time.No lover will complain when you present them with a well-iced Negroni as they walk through your door; no house-guest will complain about a round of Gin Sours.

‘To cocktail’ was coined as a verb by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1928. This guide embodies thatGolden Age spiritwhile giving it a thoroughlymodern makeover. Expressly structured for the amateur, it will remind you just how much pleasure there is in cokctailing at home.
