X is one of the world's oldest prepared beverages, possibly dating back to the early Neolithic or 9000 BC, and is recorded in the written history of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. The earliest Sumerian writings contain references to a type of X. A prayer to the goddess Ninkasi, known as "The Hymn to Ninkasi", serves as both a prayer as well as a method of remembering the recipe for X in a culture with few literate people. A X made from rice, which, unlike sake, didn't use the amylolytic process, and was probably prepared for fementation by mastication or malting, was made in China around 7,000 BC
