gaz regan—the bartender formerly known as Gary Regan—is the cocktail columnist for The San Francisco Chronicle, and the author of The Joy of Mixology. He also wrote The Bartender’s Bible, and co-authored, with Mardee Haidin Regan, The Book of Bourbon and Other Fine American Whiskeys, The Bourbon Companion, The Martini Companion, and New Classic Cocktails.


gaz and Mardee host the web site, publish the ardent spirits email newsletter (since 1999), and manage the Worldwide Bartender Database. gaz started working behind the bar in 1966 when he was 14 years old, has tended bar on and off ever since, and he has sucked back more gin than you’d ever dream possible. Even more than Dave Wondrich.

“Reading this highly informative and raffishly charming book is almost as fun as sharing a drink—and make mine a Doc Daneeka Royale, or maybe an 1820, or a Leo Di Janeiro, or, hell, you choose—with the highly informative and raffishly charming Mr. Regan himself (but please don’t tell him I said so; it’ll only encourage him).”

—David Wondrich
Author of Imbibe,
and numerous other fine works of cocktailian splendour.
