Think radical, drink radical pt. 2

Well, sort of,

I noticed this rather interesting vintage for sale in a fancy delicatessen in Paris. (This old label is rather dull, the current one has a nice picture of the Chevalier half in man’s clothes and half in a dress.)

The Chevalier D’Eon features in my new book as the reputed lover of John Wilkes (although that rumour was almost certainly an unfounded attempt to smear the staunchly heterosexual libertine) and as one of Mary Wollstonecraft’s female heroes (alongside Catherine the Great).
