Cauldrons, offhand tools, even my own backpack can break bottles. This leads to accidentally teleporting or destroying stew not to mention the loss of the empty bottles trying to scoop stew or hand it to someone holding it their backpack. It hardly takes a tap.
Knock your bottle against your backpack or a cauldron. It breaks easier than slamming it on the ground.
