Beverages are quite significant in the history and cultural traditions of any nation. This is due to the fact that from earliest days of its development not a single nation, not a single human society, not a single person could do without this or that beverage even during a day.
Since primitive times the man has worshiped water and water sources, considering that both great rivers, such as the Nile or the Ganges, and tiny streams are under the protection and patronage of some special Divinities.
Within the course of development of life and culture, different nations have originated the cult drinks of their own, which gave rise to intoxicating mixtures, consumed on holidays. Every nation had some specific beverages of their own, made of the ingredients inherent to each nation.
