David Embury

From Chanticleer Society

Identified by Imbibe Magazine as one of “The Top 25 Most Influential Cocktail Personalities of the Past Century”[1]:

"Neither bartender nor journalist, David Embry was the first connoisseur to publish a cocktail book simply based upon his affinity for well-crafted mixed drinks. His immensely popular book, The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, was published in 1948 and is considered the first cocktail guide for both hobbyists and pros."
