Description

Foreword by Alexandre Ricard.

'A thoroughly splendid and very persuasive paean to the glories of the home bar. If you have secretly dreamed of building a bar inside your house, then you need this book.' Victoria Moore


Home Bar covers all aspects of home bar design in addition to offering inspiration advice on how to create it; from which drinks to include, glassware and fridges, to recipes from some key bartenders and truly inspiring interiors. Whether you hanker after a small, stylish bar cart for a tiny urban apartment or are planning a bespoke entertainment space in your home, indoors or out, Home Bar is a comprehensive resource and a go-to inspirational manual of discerning drinks.

With exclusive access to the owner of Pernod Ricard’s own glamorous home bar in the south of France, this book will appeal to Mad Men fans, millenials for whom a homemade cocktail from a drinks trolley is the height of cool, and also to any discerning drinker fascinated by the mystique of soda syphons, cocktail kits and seriously interesting aperitifs and digestifs. Written by a leading authority on drink, Home Bar includes photographs from Simon Upton, one of the world’s leading interiors photographers working in exclusive homes. With images from major bar cart retailers too, this book is a beautiful, comprehensive and indispensable reference for cool drinks at home, anytime.

The author

Henry Jeffreys was born in London in 1977. After graduating from the University of Leeds, where he studied English and Classical Literature, he spent so much time in Oddbins that they offered him a job. He worked in the wine trade for two years and then moved into publishing. At the same time, he worked as a freelance journalist, book reviewer, founder member of the London Review of Breakfasts website and contributor to the Breakfast Bible (Bloomsbury 2013).
 
In 2010, he started a blog about wine called ‘Henry’s World of Booze’ which became one of the most popular wine blogs in Britain. Following its success, he was made wine columnist for The Lady by Rachel Johnson and in 2014 was shortlisted for Drinks Writer of the Year at the Fortnum & Mason awards for his work in the Spectator. In 2015, he wrote a weekly column for the Guardian called ‘Empire of Drinks’ looking at history and alcohol. He is now a regular contributor to the Spectator, the Guardian, the Economist, the Financial Times, the Oldie and Food & Wine magazine on drink and other matters. He lives in Blackheath, south London with his wife and daughter. Empire of Booze is his first book and won him the Fortnum & Mason Best First Drink Book Award 2017.
