About

"A book? Are you kidding me, son? Why don't you make a video like everyone else..." Those were the words of my old grandma when I told her I want to make a book about cocktails and the most charismatic bartenders of the world.

Sure, videos are cool, but we want to catch the moment and distillate it in words and images and fix it on paper. The tear sliding down the glass, the sharp edge of a lime smiling before being pounded, the dance between light and shadows over a spoon of blueberry jam. The pages must tell a story, you can smell, touch and love the paper: they can talk, so stay awhile and listen!

Let's play a kind of reductio ad absurdum game. What would be like our world if the monks in the Middle Ages have made video and vlog eating Oreo and driving Lamborghini naked instead of consuming themselves on books and parchments? 

First of all we will speak about the basics, the great cocktails everybody should know. There will be recipes and delicious photos, but we don't want to write a simple recipe book or the guide the ultimate tipsy gentleman. Recipes will be only the beginning of our adventure!

We are on a mission, we will travel to find and share the most incredibile bartenders' masterpieces. Yes, of course, we a long way to go, but we are eager to start our journey: give us a camera (and some pledges too, dear friends) and we shall move the earth!

If everything goes as planned the book will be ready for the end of November so we can send it to you just in time for Christmas. Wouldn't be a delightful gift?

[Italiano]

Vogliamo fare un libro sui cocktail, un libro da amare e tenere vicino a sé, da assaggiare e centellinare con calma. Gustare le sfumature di ogni ricetta, assaporare le foto, annusare i profumi della frutta fresca. 

Ma non sarà solo un libro di ricette cocktail, vogliamo di più, vogliamo andare alla ricerca dei migliori bartender del pianeta per intervistarli, per fotografarli e per farci dare le loro ricette speciali. 

In quest'era di video, vogliamo fermarci e scrivere e fotografare per cogliere quell'attimo fuggente, la goccia che scivola via, la luce che taglia il sorriso del lime prima di essere pestato, le ombre sulle sinuose sulle curve del ghiaccio.

Siamo nel pieno del Rinascimento della nobile arte della miscelazione, non c'è mai stato tanto fermento, tanta fantasia, così tante novità e voglia di sperimentare. 

E allora, se ci darete fiducia, noi ce la metteremo tutta e proveremo a distillare in un libro tutto quello di bello che i grandi barman hanno da dare.

Risks and challenges

It will be a tough task, there are a lot of things that could go wrong: flight delays, memory card lost in translation, relentless-unwanted drunkenness, tight deadlines, shipping problems, but we have a good team. This is the secret of our project, and of course wi-fi cameras and cloud storage too.

Alfredo, (myself) will make the trip, the interviews and take photographs.

But then come our nifty graphic designer Francesca and Tony "The Copy" that will make the magic happen and shake all the ingredients to make a juicy product.

First challenge: the schedule of the trip. We have made a selection, but through pledges you can choose you favorite bartender, so you can be part of our project. We made it even harder, but much more satisfying!

Second challenge: printing. We are not monks, so we have to rely on a typography to create the book itself. We have been working with these guys for years, so they are like brothers and sisters for us.

Third challenge, the most important: will it be a nice book? A hook me book? Is it worth the candle? I can assure one thing: we are going to do everything we can to make it great! By the way cocktails, photography, copy and graphic design are our jobs and we have been working on our website for 8 year, so this is our bread and butter.
