About the Author

Amy Stewart knows how to get to the bottom of a good story.  Here she is in Dijon, refusing to leave the distillery until she gets to the bottom of–well, at least to the bottom of the glass.

Her sixth book, New York Times bestseller The Drunken Botanist, is published by Algonquin Books . As the title suggests, it combines her lifelong interests in botany and well-made cocktails. The book explores hundreds of plants that are fermented, distilled, macerated, infused, mixed, and otherwise made into drinks.
