I sat down with Author and producer of Atsby Vermouth, Adam Ford for some cocktails and a nice chat about his new book Vermouth, The Revival of the Spirit That Created America's Cocktail Culture.
Well, as I said we had a fascinating discussion and some lovely Vermouth cocktails made with his Atsby Vermouth, unfortunately my up until now trusty portable audio recorder let me down this time. I have the first 7 minutes of the conversation, but the rest of the file is corrupt.
Adam generously agreed to meet me again, (on Skype this time), so we can salvage the next episode of Bartender Journey. But it was very disturbing to lose this great recording.
With Tales Of The Cocktail coming up next week, I need a reliable audio recorder. Today I will be ordering the Tascam DR-40. At $141 this looks to be a great bargain, and will give me some new useful features.
I will post here to let you know how it works out!
