  1. This important book looks at the entire history of distilling in the Middle East and Europe from the earliest experiments by the Pythagorean alchemists of Ptolomaic Egypt in the fourth century BC to the commerical production of spirits to drink in the British Isles to the year 2000. Ms. Wilson has explored byways of early history that have been little noticed by previous scholars. She links the art of distilling to alchemical practice; to the Dionysian cults of ancient Greece and Rome; to the development of the art by the Gnostic mystic Christian sects (who greatly influenced the Coptic church in lower Egypt and Ethiopia); to the research of the Persians and Arabs; to the preservation of the art by various heretic cults in western Europe, such as the Bogomils and Cathars and, of course, the Templars; into more mainstream development by the medieval and Renaissance alchemists; before comparative relaxation into the domestic history of distilling in England for the manufacture of strong liquor and the making of medicinal and perfumed waters by members of the landed gentry. There are twelve chapters divided into three sections. The first section consists of: The Ancient and Early Medieval World; The Eastern Mediterranean Region; The Later Middle Ages; Western Europe; From Early Modern Times to AD2000: The British Isles. While dealing extensively with the mystical, cultish and religious origins of distilling, as well as its links to early science, Ms Wilson looks closely at all forms of distilling in the British Isles. This includes the manufacture of spiritous liquors such as whisky, gin and others, and the central part played in country house domestic life by cordial waters and other distillations manufactured with great skill by generations of housewives as home medicine and perfumery. The book does not treat, at any length, the history of spiritous liquors, including brandy, on mainland Europe.

  2. This book is a scientific analysis of the soil and climatic factors affecting wine grape production, and thus, ultimately, wine itself. It provides a reasoned basis for the term 'terroir', and critically examines the science of climate change and how it could affect viticulture and winemaking. Dr John Gladstones is an internationally recognised authority on climate and viticulture, and among other achievements was instrumental in the establishment of the Margaret River wine district in Western Australia. 'For anyone interested in the future interaction between climate, climate change and viticulture, this book simply has to be read. Dr John Gladstones's painstaking research is the foundation for his equally carefully constructed conclusions that robustly challenge mainstream opinions. - James Halliday 'Just when I thought I had it all sorted after 18 years of travelling with Viticulture and Environment and giving a copy to all of my friends, the grand old renaissance man of viticulture has produced Wine, Terroir and Climate Change.Not only do I have to buy a whole new set of his books to give away, I have to rethink my long term viticultural strategy of defence against climate change in the much more comfortable logic he presents of the resilience of terroir. John Gladstones's intricately researched understanding of climate mechanisms and history, geology, soil and biology has created a welcome antidote to climate hysteria.' - Brian Croser 'This is the eagerly anticipated successor to Viticulture and Environment - and it does not disappoint. After a prodigious amount of research, Dr Gladstones has delivered a thought-provoking mixture of science, history and inspired deduction in this masterful work. Without any doubt, his views on the causes of climate change are controversial - and I look forward to the debate that will inevitably ensue.' - Peter Dry
