520    In By the Smoke & the Smell, spirits expert Thad Vogler 
       takes readers around the world, celebrating the vivid 
       characters who produce hand-made spirits like rum, scotch,
       cognac, and mezcal. From the mountains of Mexico and the 
       forbidden distilleries of Havana, to the wilds of Scotland
       and the pastoral corners of France and beyond, this 
       adventure will change how you think about your drink. Thad
       Vogler, owner of San Francisco's acclaimed Bar Agricole 
       and Trou Normand, is one of the most important people in 
       the beverage industry today. He's a man on a mission to 
       bring "grower spirits"-spirits with provenance, made in 
       the traditional way by individuals rather than by mass 
       conglomerates-to the public eye, before they disappear 
       completely. We care so much about the food we eat: how it 
       is made, by whom, and where. Yet we are far less careful 
       about the spirits we drink, often allowing the biggest 
       brands with the most marketing dollars to control the 
       narrative. In By the Smoke and the Smell, Vogler is here 
       to set the record straight. This remarkable memoir is the 
       first book to ask the tough questions about the booze 
       industry: where our spirits come from, who makes them, and
       at what cost. By the Smoke and the Smell is also a 
       celebration of the people and places behind the most 
       singular, life-changing spirits on earth. Vogler takes us 
       to Normandy, where we drink calvados with lovable Vikings;
       to Cuba, a country where Vogler lived for a time, and that
       has so much more to offer than cigars, classic cars, and 
       mojitos; to the jagged cliffs and crystal-clear lochs of 
       Scotland; to Northern Ireland, Oaxaca, Armagnac, Cognac, 
       Kentucky, and California. Alternately hilarious and 
       heartfelt, Vogler's memoir will open your eyes to the rich
       world of traditional, small-scale distilling-and in the 
       process, it will completely change the way you think about
       and buy spirits.
