The Origin of Borracho

In many rural regions of Spain, wine is still served in leather bota bags which in the 15th century were called borrachas, in Catalan.

Borracha comes from botella (bottle) y morratxa (a type of laboratory bottle). Later, the Spanish word borracho was used to talk about a drunkard, someone who was lleno de vino (full of wine).
