I think the characters in Thomas Hardy's _Mayor of Casterbridge_ drink "furmity" at a street market in the beginning of the book (his spelling, not mine, since I've never seen it mentioned anywhere but there and above)--it sounds like what vindelis described. Michael Henchard has alcohol (rum or whiskey? I forget) added to his on the sly.
