History of Alcohol
Alcohol was presumably first created over tens of thousands of years ago. It played a large part in religious worship, and was substituted for water in early times. By the Middle Ages, alcohol was extremely popular. It was desired due to its calming effects (as alcohol is a depressant.) However, by the 1700s, the harm it could cause began to be recognized. Alcohol was forbidden both morally and spiritually.
Distillation is the process of boiling liquid to the point at which the ethanol and water separates.
