Title: The Martini by Barnaby Conrad III

Sentences 6, 7,& 8 of page 123: "William of Orange, a Dutchman, became King of England in 1688 when his predecessor, James II, was exiled to France. Up until then, many of the wines and spirits of the day had come from France, but King William ended French trade and gave the English the right to distill spirits from native-grown grain. Gin consumption rose from an estimated half million gallons in 1690 to 5 million gallons in 1727."

I tag: Matt, Jeff, James, Kevin, and Don.
