Tiki is simultaneously whimsical and sincere, simple and shockingly complex, which means understanding it can be challenging. This indispensable book explains it all and is the definitive volume on one of the cocktail world s most fascinating and complex genres. But in the end, tiki s essence is based on captivating stories and exotic drinks, and Martin Cate s Smuggler s Cove is a tour de force in both.

The old guard of Donn, Vic, and Steve can rest easy now that they have this champion of their tradition bringing tiki into the new millennium.

Martin Cate is an authority on rum, and this book will take your level of understanding of this noble yet complex spirit to a new level.

An absolute must-have for rum enthusiasts.

Gaz Regan, author of The Joy of Mixology and The Negroni

Tiki culture is enmeshed with rum, and the authors offer a master class on it, covering its history and many varieties, as well as digressions on coring pineapples for cocktails and where to score cocktail umbrellas. It s a terrifically fun and informative read, and the definitive resource on the topic.
