Wine traces found in China, many sore heads!!

People in ancient China may have been enjoying the delights of wine as long as 9,000 years ago, making them the first in the world to enjoy a tipple.
US scientists found traces of the vintage alcohol made from rice, honey and fruit in pottery jars excavated in a Neolithic village in northern China.

Previously, the earliest evidence of beer and wine-making dated from some 7,400 years ago in Iran.

The scientists say the old brewing traditions are still found in China.

The Chinese brew was discovered by researchers led by archaeo-chemist Patrick McGovern, of the University of Pennsylvania Museum.

"Chemical analyses of ancient organics absorbed, and preserved, in pottery jars from the Neolithic village of Jiahu, in Henan province, northern China, have revealed that a mixed fermented beverage of rice, honey, and fruit was being produced as early as 9,000 years ago," the university said in a statement.

And the Romans had Bacchus, the god of agriculture and wine..... people in the Mediterranean used to drink water all the time, whilst in northern countries it was beer.

Yep Ags, beer developed in the northern climes because good wine grapes didn't grow there but barley did. Distill beer and you get Uske (Whiskey)!

Who cares? 

The real word is  the Gaelic "Uske" (translates as 'Barley Juice' -- banion nmor uske mauger)
