Before we had more advanced technology, the best way to proof alcohol involved gunpowder and fire. The practice dates back to 16th-century England and was adopted by the British Royal Navy two centuries later, when sailors wanted to test their daily allotment of rum. The system was simple: They’d mix gunpowder into their liquor and strike a match. If the wet gunpowder still caught flame, the spirit had sufficient levels of alcohol. If it didn’t, the sailor knew it was watered-down swill.
