Andrew has written a number of books over the last 20 years. His two most recent books Peat Smoke and Spirit: a Portrait of Islay and its Whiskies and The New France both received great critical acclaim. See the book pages for reviews and more details.
His next book, Andrew Jefford's Wine Course, is now published. It is a friendly, accessible and easy-going introduction to wine for those who know little or nothing about it. The Wine Course is divided up into twenty different projects under three main headings: The Tools, The Elements and The Journey. The aim is provide those reading it with a framework for further discoveries, and the confidence to explore.
Whisky lovers of a thoughtful bent may also care to look out for Andrew's iconoclastic essay in the forthcoming Whisky and Philosophy, to be published by Wiley/Blackwell. More details when publication is imminent.
