              The fiery burn of rebellion rum, a thirst-quenching gulp of ice-cold beer, the medicinal tang of restorative bitters... What did the drinks that shaped Australia first taste like? In search of answers, award-winning writer Max Allen takes us on a personal journey through Australi...a's colourful and complex drinking history, glass in hand. We taste the fermented sap of the Tasmanian cider gum, enjoyed by Indigenous people long before European invasion, sip 'claret' and 'sherry' in the cool stone cellars of the country's oldest wineries, sample 150-year-old champagne rescued from a shipwreck and help brew an iconic 1960s Australian lager. Allen also shares recipes for historic cocktails to try at home (Blow My Skull, anyone?), introduces many of the characters from Australia's boozy history and offers a glimpse of how our drinking culture might evolve in the future. Whatever your pleasure, Intoxicating illuminates the undeniable place alcohol has in Australia's history.

              The Future Makers: Australian Wines for the 21st Century EBook (EPUB ebook)

              By Allen, Max

              The Future Makers is a groundbreaking new work by wine writer Max Allen, set to redefine Australia's wine landscape for the new century. As global warming and continued drought threaten the state of the Australian wine industry, many winemakers are beginning to think long-term, a...nd in doing so are starting to better understand the unique relationship they have with their vine-growing land. The Future Makers takes you around the country and introduces you to the areas and the people shaping Australia's wine future. Regional chapters feature in-depth profiles of top winemakers - those who are upholding valuable traditions, those who are setting the standard for varietal wine quality and those who are at the cutting edge of innovation - plus tasting notes for all of their best wines. Also included are detailed explanations of why a region's wines taste the way they do: a portrait of soils, climate, grape varieties and cultural influences that contribute to the singular qualities of Australia's diverse wine styles. Throughout the book you'll find extended discussions of the controversies and debates moulding Australia's new wine tradition, and an exploration of the major issues and challenges facing Australia's grape growers and winemakers. At the heart of The Future Makers is a celebration of the diversity, complexity and unmistakable flavour of Australia's wines.
