I don't have any documentation that the distillation process existed
 before the fourteenth century.  So, you're looking at meads, wines,
 and probably ales but I don't do any research in the beer and ale
 department so don't quote me on the ales.  The first mention I have of
 distillation used in medical form is Arnald de Villanova's _Book of
 Wine_ circa @1309.  Does anyone else have any earlier information? 
 As for proportions any modern book on kitchen cordials will be of help.
