Udolpho Wolfe was a well-known New York gin importer. He dabbled in local politics, and was from a well-connected Virginia family (his father was a friend of President James Monroe). Wolfe's Schnapps was not a frivolous beverage, but a "medicinal gin."  It was said to be a good diuretic, a cure for "abdominal dropsy" and other ills. Udolpho Wolfe's Schnapps was a dry gin marketed in America between 1841 and 1871. Schnapps was a gin invented in Schiedam by a Dutch professor seeking a diuretic to help kidney functioning. It was originally sold as medicine in apothecaries, and then English soldiers brought it back to England where it became a favorite of the working class.  [sl]
