What to drink whilst reading What I Talk About When I Talk About Love by Raymond Carver

February 22, 2018


The book


A collection of short stories by one of the masters of the genre. It examines the big concepts of love alongside the minutiae of relationships. 


The toast


Carver was a well-known fan of a drink as he worked. In this particular collection the characters are rather impartial to a tipple as well. 


In the eponymous story, the characters drink so much gin that it is a wonder the story can even continue. I've chosen The Botanist Islay Dry Gin which is packed with 22 hand-foraged botanicals. It smells delicious even in the bottle. I think sometimes you open a gin and it smells too strong, but this one makes you want to drink it straight away.
