Happy Laboratory Day!

Distillation of wine to make cognac from The principles of chemistry, illustrated by simple experiments by Stöckhardt & Peirce (1861).

Chemistry classes were definitely more fun back in the 1860s.

Oneanthic acid is also called onanthic acid. Cue for a rugby song I know....

I like my brandy,
it makes me feel randy,
but most of all I like my vino.
Yes, I like my vino.
It gives me a stand supremo.
