On this very day, in a Lincolnshire hamlet in 1643, Hannah Ayscough gave birth to a son so small he could fit in a 1 litre jug. Little would anyone have guessed that the tiny baby, called Isaac Newton, would go on to make one of the most important scientific discoveries of all time.

Isaac Newton discovered gravity after watching an apple falling from a tree. So, we were thinking that it would be appropriate to mix a drink inspired by the very fruit that inspired Newton. Shake up a Washington Apple and toast the guy who first understood what really kept our feet on the ground.
