  • THE DRINK WAS BROUGHT BACK FROM INDIA TO ENGLAND BY THE SAILORS AND EMPLOYEES OF THE BRITISH EAST INDIA COMPANY IN THE EARLY SEVENTEENTH CENTURY. FROM THERE IT WAS INTRODUCED INTO OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRY.
  • The word THE WORD PUNCH IS APPARENTLY A LOANWORD FROM HINDI. THE ORIGINAL DRINK WAS NAMED PAANTSCH, WHICH IS HINDI FOR "FIVE”.
  • THE DRINK WAS MADE FROM FIVE DIFFERENT INGREDIENTS SPIRIT SUGAR LEMON WATER TEA OR SPICES
  • An interesting story “World Record” 1694 Edward Russell, 1st Earl of Orford 1653 –1727 Russell became First Lord of the Admiralty in 1694 Officer party in 1694 with a giant punch: About 8000 / 10 000 litres +/-
  • KING OF THE PUNCH the 15th October 1694 Admiral Edward Russell, then commanding the Mediterranean fleet, gave a grand entertainment at Alicante. The tables were laid under the shade of orange-trees, in four garden-walks meeting in a common centre, at a marble fountain, which last, for the occasion, was converted into a Titanic punch-bowl.
  • The record for history's largest cocktail Four hogsheads of brandy (250 Gallons = 1136 litres), one pipe of Malaga wine (125 Gallons=568 litres), Twenty gallons of lime-juice (90 litres), twenty-five hundred lemons, thirteen hundredweight of fine white sugar, five pounds' weight of grated nutmegs, three hundred toasted biscuits, and eight hogsheads of water (3500 litres), formed the ingredients of this monster brewage. An elegant canopy placed over the potent liquor, prevented waste by evaporation, or dilution by rain; while, in a boat, built expressly for the purpose, a ship boy rowed round the fountain, to assist in filling cups for the six thousand persons who partook of it.
  • The bartenders/sailors had to work in 15-minute shifts to avoid being overcome by the fumes and falling overboard. The party continued nonstop for a full week, pausing only briefly during rainstorms to erect a silk canopy over the punch to keep it from getting watered down. In fact, the festivities didn't end until the fountain had been drunk completely dry

  • Reading & illustrations CONVIVIAL DICKENS Edward Hewett & W.F. Axton on the Drinks of Dickens & his time First publication in 1926
  • DRINKING WITH DICKENS Cedric Dickens was the last surviving great-grandson of British author Charles Dickens. He wrote : ““Drinking with Dickens” HOT GIN PUNCH Recipe based and inspired by Charles Dickens own recipe taken from the book ‘Drinking with Dickens’ Cedric Charles Dickens Pub. by New Amsterdam Books 1988
  • David Copperfield, 1850 “Punch my dear Copperfield, like time and tide, waits for no man” “The Gin Punch, Mr Micawber’s favourite”
  • THE GIN SHOP George Cruikshank, illustration Oliver Twist (1837-39) Cruikshank, who was all too familiar with gin- shops himself, captures the vivacious scene: flaring gas lamps, pretty barmaid, tuns of “Out-and Out” and “Cream of the Valley”, and raucous company. To the right a burly pugilist keeps a look-out for trouble, which appears to be brewing across the room.
  • THE BAR OF THE “SIX JOLLY FELLOWSHIP PORTERS” Marcus Stone, illustration, our Mutual Friend, (1864-65) In Dickens' day, though drinks were served at the bar, they were drunk somewhere else in the tavern, the bar itself being but a place of dispensation and observation.
  • THE BARMAID Gavarni, illustration, Albert Smith, Gavarni in London (1849) The Guildhall Library By 1849, the bar was already evolving into its present island or peninsula from its earlier glassed-in cage, and pub patrons were both served and drank at the bar. Taking a leaf from gin palaces, publican were installing pretty young women to serve out the drinks and entertain the customers.
  • PUNCH IN AMERICA Punch was popular in Virginia, it was popular in New York, it was popular in Pennsylvania. William Black recorded in his diary in 1744 that in Philadelphia he was given cider and punch for lunch; rum and brandy before dinner; punch, Madeira, port, and sherry at dinner; punch and liqueurs with the ladies; and wine, spirit, and punch till bedtime; all in punch bowls big enough for a goose to swim in.
  • In 1757 S. M. of Boston, who was doubtless Samuel Mather, the son of Cotton Mather, sent to Sir Harry Frankland, the hero of the New England romance of Agnes Surriage & a lineal descendant of Oliver Cromwell (his father was governor of the East India company's factory in Bengal), a box of lemons with these lines: "You know from Eastern India came The skill of making punch as did the name. And as the name consists of letters five, By five ingredients is it kept alive. To purest water sugar must be joined, With these the grateful acid is combined. Some any sours they get contented use, But men of taste do that from Tagus choose. When now these three are mixed with care Then added be of spirit a small share. And that you may the drink quite perfect see, A top the musky nut must grated be."
