Totally true, didn't mean to imply that methanol was the only cause of hangovers. Proof is a fun pop-sci book that talks about hangovers and does a little anecdotal experiment with different hangover cures.

This in my opinion, this is the book to get. It's an easy read, nerdy, but not too hard to grasp.

Edited some words.

As someone who's been interested in alcohol for many years now, I loved this book. It covers a lot about the process of making alcoholic beverages, mixed with a bit of history and culture. Great for anyone with a passing interest in the subject of where your booze comes from.

If you're looking for something more on the technical side, I can recommend Proof by Adam Rogers. It talks about chemistry specifically: how fermentation and distillation work, what happens to you when you get drunk, even hangovers get a chapter.

Try every cask strength and barrel proof whisky you can man. Aberlour abunadh, Glenlivet nadurra, OGD 114, when whisky is proofed down it can really destroy mouth feel. Also try out things that are non-chill filtered, the act of chill filtering actually thins out a whole bunch of lipid chains.

For really interesting malt whisky textures try out anything clynelish. The Craigellachie has some extra weight on the palate too, but that's more to do with their ridiculous condensation setup than the act of aging it. Also Loch Lomond stuff tends to nail it for mouth feel.

Also, for just a great primer on spirits in general without getting too technical check this book out Proof: The Science of Booze

To stay on top of my game I drink, go out to other bars, hang with other industry people, and read. Latest read:

Read Proof. It's why hair of the dog works.
