Ancient wine has been found in China, archaeologists quoted in a Xinhua report say. The still-liquid tipple was found in an ancient bronze wine vessel, located in the tomb of a nobleman. The find was made at Shigusan Mountain, near the north-central Chinese city of Baoji.
The ancient booze, according to Liu Jun, director of the Baoji Archaeology Institute, is the oldest to have been found in China yet. It’s believed to hail from the Western Zhou dynasty, which saw a hey-day of 1046 to 771 B.C, according to the report.
Technically, it isn’t verified yet and not all that old as these things go.
