Without Britain, none of the world's favourite wines would exist. Neither would champagne, port, rum or whisky. Not even beer. How did one small nation come to exert such a lasting influence on the world of booze? Empire of Booze is a loose history of Britain, cleverly and humorously told through its contributions to alcohol, charting the rise of British power from its small corner of Europe to global pre-eminence. Each chapter features a historical period and a drink – tracing its origins and examining its impact on British culture, literature, science, philosophy and religion. Learn about how. . . . . . the champagne we drink today is owed to British technology for making sparkling wine. . . . rum and India Pale Ale were developed so they could withstand the long, hot journeys to Britain's burgeoning overseas empire. . . . whisky became the drink of choice for weary empire builders far from home. . . . without alcohol, the pre-twentieth century global economy could not function. With drink recommendations offered throughout, you can booze while you read along. So raise a glass to Britain, the Empire of Booze, whose alcoholic innovations are some of its greatest, lasting gifts to the world.
