## Unit Information

Bushel
/ˈbʊʃ(ə)l/
Symbol: bsh
Unit System: Imperial

### What is the Bushel?

The bushel is a unit of volume in the imperial unit system with the symbol bsh.

1 bushel is equal to 8 dry gallons, or 36.36872 litres.

The bushel was introduced in England as a unit to bridge the relatively large gap between a pound and a ton - and was used largely to measure volumes of liquid being imported and exported following the Norman Conquest such as wine and ale.

The name bushel comes from the ancient French 'boissiel' which means 'little box'.

Gill
/dʒɪl/
Symbol: gi
Unit System: Imperial

### What is the Gill?

The gill is a unit of volume in the imperial unit system and uses the symbol gi.

It represents 1/4 of a pint - so in this instance, it is 1/4 of an imperial pint - therefore measures exactly 142.0653125 ml. It's also equal to 2 imperial cups and 1/32 of an imperial gallon.

It is pronounced with a "J" sound at the beginning - and it actually part of a humorous in the nursery rhyme 'Jack & Jill'.

In the UK it was used throughout pubs as standard measures; for example spirits were served as 1/6 gill as standard. In Scotland it was 1/5 gill and in Ireland 1/4 gill. It's still used in the Republic of Ireland today.
