Quote from Bill Lark, owner of Tasmania’s leading distillery in Tasmania

“This is the book that needs to be written”

New York born Alice Parsons, spent the first twenty years of her life in the northern hemisphere, the last thirty in the southern. A mother of four children, Alice developed an appetite for travel adventure and language (Alice speaks French, Italian, and Spanish) and has gained a wealth of experience working in publishing and marketing, media and communications, advertising, wholesale and retail, event management, editing, and writing. Now a permanent resident of Australia’s Hunter Valley, Alice and her husband Anthony, their two dogs, six chickens, two geldings, and two brumby ponies enjoy a life of tea and whisky appreciation. Alice has written The Magic of Tea and The Lore of Whisky.
