What would Shakespeare drink?

Apparently Cotswold Gin, as the Warwickshire-based distillery is paying homage to the bard by creating a new gin based on 17th century Dutch-style genever - gin as it would have been in the time of Shakespeare. 1616 Gin is made primarily with the distillery's own malt whisky spirit, triple-distilled with juniper then aged in American oak ex-red wine casks. A short run of just 2,000 bottles, it marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, with a label design based on The Tempest. It costs £40 for a 50cl bottle at 46% vol and is available online - and later this year in Selfridges as part of the store's Shakespeare-themed celebrations.
