Brandy Nan

.

Queen Anne, who was very fond of brandy (1664, 1702–1714). On the statue of Queen Anne in St. Paul’s Churchyard a wit wrote—

“Brandy Nan, Brandy Nan, left in the lurch,

Her face to the gin-shop, her back to the church.”

A “gin palace” used to stand at the south corner of St. Paul’s Churchyard.
