The Quest for a Perfect Gin & Tonic
Written by Hans-Olov Öberg
Sweden: LB förlag
This is no ordinary cocktail book. It’s a highly personal, narrative tale of the authors own quest for a perfect Gin & Tonic, from the outset as young business student in a second-hand flat in 1984, through an eye-opening visit to the Gordons HQ in 1987, a career in journalism, investment banking and publishing until today, with wife, grown-up kids, an English bulldog and a very well stocked personal gin bar.
What about recipes? Fear not. Throughout the book, the reader will find some 40 different recipes for Gin & Tonics, ranging from straight-forward classics to heavily infused, unorthodox versions.
The one rule in this book is: there are absolutely no rules.

“If you have The Quest for a perfect Gin & Tonic at home, and still don’t feel the urge for a GT, then you haven’t read the book. The photos: so beautiful and inspiring, adding a feeling of glamour to an ordinary day. And for god’s sake – read it! The warm humour between the lines… who would have guessed that a Gin & Tonic could be so much fun even before drinking?" - Boktokig, review on November 9th
"A joyful, initiated and inspiring read, with outstanding photographs" Christian Olsson, BTJ
