The Oddbins Take

It's well known the French were great pioneers of "human-carrying flight technology". However, it's less well known that the first hot air balloon, launched in 1783, carried a sheep, a duck and a rooster. And even less well known that while others experimented with hot air, Samuel Delafont investigated CO2 gas.


He was convinced the way to reach the sky was to direct bubbles from fermented grape juice into a silk balloon, thereby inflating it enough to lift from the ground. He studied tirelessly, his workshop infused with scents of flowers and citrus, producing effervescing vats brimming with energy and finesse. But it just wouldn't quite work. Happily, taking a generous draught of the liquid had the surrogate effect of lifting the spirit and letting the mind soar. His work wasn't wasted after all!
