Baijiu is the classic Chinese spirit, and has been enjoyed for as long as 4,000 years.
This bottling has been produced in the Guizhou province, and is made using Sorghum, a kind of sweet cereal. The Sorghum is malted in a similar manner to barley for single malt whisky, and the spirit is aged in earthenware pots.
After 9 years, this bottling has developed subtle flavours of earthy spice, slight caramel and white pepper. Expect a profile and texture similar to grain based vodka, but with a little more cereal sweetness.
Traditionally Baijiu is served warm or at room temperature, but this also makes an excellent pairing to lighter beers.
