It was very exciting to read about Bosch's paintings reflect the effects of ergot and mandrake root. That one feels like flying when it is taken. It is said that this explains much of the bizarre imagery in his works. This perfectly relates to our project because of how we want to make the gin the hallucinogenic 'elixir' which transports the characters into a dreamlike world; the world they wish to be in (the Garden of Earthly Delights).
