Making a good drink is also an art; not just the brass tacks of how to construct it, whether this question is answered by the distiller or the bartender, but also the finesse it brings to the table. Whether its flavour notes transport us to the Scottish highlands or lush vineyards, whether we can taste the elderflower that went into it, almost as a sacrifice. Spirits are as old as civilisation, and individuals are only now waking up to the heritage lost (and found) within local traditions, distilling them from virgin forest produce for the world to try and marvel. Some drinks are reserved for special occasions and have a ritualistic charm. As the year draws to an end, here’s the LuxeBook team holding a drink and toasting the last month of the year with our Spirits Special Issue. May the new year bring in good fortune, happiness and health to all! —Payel Majumdar Upreti S O C I A L M E D I A A D V E R T I S I N G S A L E S Mumbai (022 - 6846 8500) Regional Manager (West) — Katty Gia • Senior Manager — Lamont Dias Delhi (011 - 6127 3135 / 6) Sr. General Mgr.
