Thread Name: Whiskey in the Jar
Subject: RE: Whiskey in the Jar
It is plain to me that jars have a much older history than bottles, because they are simpler to make, and can be thrown as well as blown and so on; and I am not completely certain but think the notion of bottling our drinks is a fairly recent invention -- whereas putting them up in jars has a long, wide-spread history to it going back more centuries than I can count, anyway. I get hung up on them eleventies, myself...
