Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie

Drinks: The Golden Age of Spirits


Episode 40

Come along as we travel the globe to discover the exciting and flavorful world of spirits, looking into the slightly wacky world of mixology and meeting the cocktail artists who are raising the bar for bartenders everywhere. In the field of molecular mixology, risk-taker Tony Conigliaro is known for blending some of the most innovative cocktails in the UK. In India, we’ll watch Keralan coconut climbers make fresh liquor from the sap of a coconut tree. We’ll also visit a micro-distillery in New York, the first to produce bourbon, rye, and vodka in the state since Prohibition. And in the Gourmet kitchen, we’re reinventing the multi-layered Pousse-Café.
