To drink like a Swiss

"It may be hard to believe now, but in the 17th century,
the Swiss had a reputation for being a nation of heavy drinkers."

An exhibition at the Forum of Swiss History in Schwyz in central Switzerland shows how drinking habits have changed over the centuries, and includes a look at Swiss inventions such as Ovomaltine and a short-lived attempt at cola.

You bet that's hard to believe !!!

Re: To drink like a Swiss

Interesting, I never thought of the Swiss inventing Nescafe (though it's obvious really).

No mention of Rivella in the article.
