Dear Georg,

I'm wouldn't condone any illegal activity, but for academic purposes 
there are distilled recipes to be found in:

The Book of Quinte Essencia by FJ Furnivall (Early English Text 
Society) - 15thC also contains details of equipment

A Leechbook or Collection of 15th century medical recipes by Warren 

Curye on Inglysch by Constance Hieatt & Sharon Butler - Late 14thC 

However, it's worth emphasising that in England before the 16th 
century distilled drinks were mainly used for medicinal rather than social
