A celebration of Agatha Christie’s timeless murder mysteries, killer short stories, suspenseful plays, and unmatched characters—with cocktails that are so tantalizingly delicious, it must be a crime.

Dame Agatha Christie is perhaps the world’s most famous mystery writer with over a billion copies of her books sold. Agatha Whiskey takes clues from Agatha’s most pivotal works of fiction and honors her most popular detectives. Featured supersleuths are Dame Agatha herself, the one and only Maiden of Murder, private detective Hercule Poirot, whose sleuthing is only outdone by his magnificent mustache, and Miss Marple, the sweet old maid with an uncanny knack for crime solving. 

There’s a plot twist for everyone with fifty thrilling drinks such as a pocket full of rosé, orient espresso martini, and daiquiri on the Nile. There are also detective drinking games to get the whole party on the right track, perhaps sipping until there were none, and mocktails for those who choose to forgo an endless night.

Just like Agatha, Agatha Whiskey is here to entertain, inspire, and add some drama of the right sort to your life.

Praise For…

"Classic cocktails with a twist and a tale!"
—Society Social

“With stunning photographs and clever cocktails that wink at the Queen of Mystery’s novels and characters, Agatha Whiskey is a must-have for every whodunnit fan with a taste for sparkling cyanide.”
—Meg Hafdahl and Kelly Florence, authors of The Science of Agatha Christie

"After years of being clueless, I finally tracked down my favorite cocktail."
—Robin Robinson, author of The Complete Whiskey Course

"I find the idea of a cocktail guide paired with an entertainment genre I greatly enjoy something worthwhile. This is even more so because Christie’s detectives, like Poirot and Marple, were known to have a taste for a well-made cocktail. In fact, it’s a fair description to say alcohol infuses Christie’s work on a level similar to Ian Fleming’s Bond novels."
