Thread Name: Whiskey in the Jar - Irish? Appalachian?
Subject: RE: Whiskey in the Jar - Irish? Appalachian?
Yes, and there were two bands from the South called the "fruit jar drinkers" and the "fruit jar guzzlers," so I think this was a common rural practice throughout the south and the west at least. I didn't drink out of jars much in the (urban) Northeast, but it wouldn't surprise me if rural folks in the northeast did.
