Exactly my point. If Islam/Muslims had anything to do with it, it would have been prohibited. But the original poster was trying to claim the distillation as an achievement of Islam. Just an example of painting a different picture of what is actually true.
I think he was using this to illustrate that Islam can be very liberal and enlightened and can bend its own rules. I.e., it is prepared to put scientific discourse and the good life before pedantry, verse-splitting and blind obedience if only given the right conditions.
