Difford’s Guide to Cocktails Book Sixteenth Edition
We're expecting delivery from our printers in time to start selling this new edition in late-October/early November 2021. In the meantime, we still have our 15th Edition available.
Our chunky, 2.2kg heavyweight, 2 inches thick, hardback cocktail book has 3,000 recipes (in both ml and ounces) all accompanied by a colour photograph and many with extensive info behind their history.
New recipes to 16th edition: 300
Recipes updated since 15th edition: 300
Cover price: £32.95 but we'll be selling for £28 plus postage (from just £4.97 in the UK no matter how many copies).
We self-publish this English edition
I (Simon Difford) make the cocktails and write the book.
Dan, our long-standing photographer and designer creates the recognisably Difford's Guide look and feel with a pic alongside each cocktail.
Paloma, my partner and our boss, makes it happen and checks our work.
By us & only from us
Thanks to Covid we took the decision to only sell directly from this page ourselves rather than via retailers such as Amazon (as with previous editions) so every sale helps fund this website.
Packed & dispatched by us
We hand-package and label every book ourselves and dispatch directly from our little office in East Sussex.
We are keen to avoid the use of single-use plastics but equally want to ensure our books arrive in perfect condition, clean and dry, encased in their own protective atmosphere. Hence, our printers shrink-wrap every book. Please dispose of this plastic wrapper responsibly and be reassured that our purpose-made plain brown boxes with protective ends are made from recycled material and are recyclable.
