The name is demijohn and these are used mainly in homebrewing of wine, beer and cider.

In ancient times, wine was stored and sold by jars but for several centuries it has been stored and sold in bottles made of glass.

The wine is fermented in tanks and (, aged, seasoned,...) in casks or barrels made of steel or oak.
