Heritage chasers enjoy a shot of fun at the Museum of London

Alcohol

Alcohol has been produced the world over for centuries.

Wine was made by fermenting fruit, rice and honey since 7000 B.C, as indicated by wine jars from ancient China. In 4000 B.C. ancient Egypt considered beer as one of the foods of life and a dietary staple.

In Britain from the 8th century ales, ciders and mead were staple drinks of the lower classes due to unsafe water supplies.

The industrial revolution brought new technology to alcohol production and 60% proof gin, produced by distilling juniper berries, became widely available.
