On the drink of collapse… The story of Gin in England

Hello history pandas!

A little departure from the norm, here. While I read a plethora of wonderful books in December, I also wrote a guest article in a web-magazine as a favour to a friend. The magazine is called “HUZZAR” and is a treasure-trove of literature, essays and art relating to British 18th century lifestyle. The editor also has the great honour of being Adam Ant’s costume designer.

But I digress.

It was fun to turn my hand to research again and while I don’t think I necessarily nailed the tone (still a little bit too serious, despite some hidden jokes- maybe too hidden) for a magazine article, I gave it a good shot and its had a decent reception!

I’ll post the link here

Cheers!
