SPIRIT LIST

The word alcohol derives from the Arabic word ‘Al-Kohl’, literally meaning
‘…the powder of antimony used to colour eyebrows’ and refers to the earliest use of
alcohol – cosmetics. The origin of alcohol probably lies in Mesopotamia (modern
day Iran/Iraq) and would have come about by leaving bread out in the hot sun,
which would have naturally fermented to produce an early kind of beer. It was
not until the introduction of the pot still in the 5th century AD that fermented
alcohols became commercially distilled to produce a ‘spirit’. Today, alcohol plays
a fundamental part in our world – it is still used widely in the production of
cosmetics, forms the base of many medicines and is drunk everywhere at times of
joy, sadness and to mark any occasion. Cheers!
