The French invented everything. Read all about it at the Exposition Universelle des Vins et Spiritueux (http://www.euvs.org/) web site.

"distillation was not achieved until alchemist Abu Musa Jabir ibn Hayyan (c.721–815 AD) designed and used a taqtir or al-ambiq. We now call this an alembic still."

A Moor I presume.....tsk, tsk...no Moorish whiskey...though alcohol is shunned by devout Moslems....no doubt it exists....date wine?

Nothing new under the sun Jono,Al-Kohl is an Arabic word and what devout muslims concern;Zottos whisky from Egypt, Murree single malt from Pakistan,Ankara malt whisky from Turkey and loads of wines made from almost everything are common by the people who aren`t allowed to use alcohol for religious reasons.Seems paradise is an empty place.

The French would have the gall, or would that be Gaul, to claim they invented sex.
