The Essential Scratch & Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert


Richard Betts, with Illustrations by Wendy MacNaughton

A close collaboration between Wendy, Master Sommelier Richard Betts and art director/designer Crystal English Sacca, The Scratch & Sniff Wine and Whiskey series was an unprecedented, fun experiment in making the complicated world of wine and whiskey approachable and accessible to everyone.

Designed like a board book and using storybook like illustrations and infographics, these two books use smell to educate readers, and culminate with a giant fold-out wall chart to help you figure out which specific spirit you’re moved by.

Many of the drawings were created using actual wine and whiskey. While that might not make much of a difference to the reader, it means the illustrator enjoyed every step of the research.
