wine-labels

Wine labels are nothing new but have played an important part in influencing the consumer for literally thousands of years.

"Uncorking Old Sherry", 1805. (Gillray) A reference to an exchange between Pitt and Sheridan in Parliament. Various members of the opposition remain corked up on the opposition benches. Fox is "True French Wine"; Windham "Brandy and Water"; Grey is "Gooseberry Wine". Addington (Lord Sidmouth) lies spilled on the ground, labelled "Medicinal Wine" (a reference to his nickname of "the Doctor").

In Uncorking Old Sherry James Gillray caricatured Sheridan as a bottle of sherry, uncorked by Pitt and bursting out with puns, invective, and fibs.
