The hulu gourd has been used for natural containers since the Chou Dynasty (1066 BC-770 BC). In wedding ceremonies of this period, brides and grooms exchanged drinks from a hulu gourd that was cut into two halves. This ritual symbolized the harmony of yin and yang, while the making of one entity from two parts represented the beginning of the home for newlyweds. In Asian countries, wine/liquor is consumed both warm and cold. When used for either temperature of wine, the double wall mouth blown wine glass keeps the wine in desirable temperature for longer period.
