Kiri asked:
<<< On a similar but different topic....can anyone give me an idea of  
whether or
not Scotch is period, at least in its antecedents?  I have a scotch  
cordial that has turned out much better than I thought it would and  
like to enter it in an upcoming competition.   While I know I cannot
document the cordial itself, it would be great if I could at least  
the ingredients. >>>

Perhaps this will help. Unfortunately, I didn't finish reading it so  
I don't remember how much of it covers the time span before 1600.  
Perhaps you can get from ILL.
