Due to the success of the first edition, Ted Bruning has now completely updated all the relevant infomation for this second editon. It’s taken nearly 40 years, but at last craft distilling is beginning to catch up with microbrewing and artisan cidermaking.

If you’ve ever dreamed of firing up a gleaming copper pot-still of your very own but have found the maze of customs and European regulations just too daunting, expert Ted Bruning lays them all bare and brings your vision within reach.
