Perhaps the world's biggest cocktail book! Certainly, our biggest yet, 624 pages, 6cm (2.3inch) thick and weighing 2.25kg (5lb). Our Seventeenth Edition hardback book has 3,300 cocktail recipes (in ml & oz) all accompanied by a colour photograph and many also have extensive historical information.

350 NEW recipes in this 17th edition with an additional 350 recipes updated/improved since 16th edition

Cover price: £37:00 but we sell directly for £33 plus postage, which starts at just £4.97 in the UK. Sadly, overseas (for US, Canada and EU) shipping is considerably more expensive but is the same whether you order just one copy or multiple copies, and is the same price if you add one or more of our nifty Easy Jiggers.

Published: (on sale since) 1st December 2022

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 of the 3,300 cocktails. Paloma, my partner and our boss, made it happen.

Packed & dispatched by us

We hand-pack and label every book ourselves and dispatch directly from our little office in picturesque East Sussex.

UK & International shipping

Our shop is configured to receive orders from and deliver books to UK, USA, Canada and EU countries. If you're in another country and so see a message saying "we don't ship to your region" please email us at hello@diffordsguide.com so we can help.

Protective packaging

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 using recycled material and are recyclable.
