Scientists say no such earthenware pot, 9,000 years old, has been found anywhere else before. That being said, the pots aren’t too big. 8 out of 20 pots have long necks. These were used by people in the past for any drink or liquor. Researchers have also collected ancient fossils from pots. They have tested that sample. After testing, they found parts of rice, a mixture of herbs and other plant ingredients inside the pot. In ancient times they were used for making drinks. Researchers say that these did not originate naturally inside the pot. There must have been alcohol in the pots. In East Asia, there is a trend of making alcohol by rotting rice.

“Studies have shown that earthenware pots were used to hold drinks,” Wang said in a statement. This drink was usually made by roasting rice. He added that making such drinks 9,000 years ago was not an easy task. Because, at that time paddy cultivation was at a very early stage.
