Ming River Sichuan Baijiu
Bottled and distilled at the Luzhou Laojiao Distillery in Luzhou, Sichuan, China
Begins with green apple peel and gives way to a mélange of tropical fruit—papaya, guava and melon—rounded out by a hint of ripe cheese.
Spicy pink peppercorn, with pineapple, anise and a bright and briny middle note. A long, mellow and a slightly earthy finish.
MIXING WITH MING RIVER BAIJIU
Baijiu is traditionally enjoyed neat at room temperature. Ming River’s fruity sweetness is the perfect counterpoint to the numbing spice of Sichuanese cuisine. As a clear but decidedly non-neutral spirit, in mixed drinks Ming River’s bold aroma and flavor can be called upon to perform like a rhum agricole, Jamaican pot still rum or a Batavia arrack, effortlessly finding a home in tiki drinks while also opening a new world for sours and aperitifs. Additionally, many classic recipes can be enhanced by incorporating Ming River baijiu in a split base or even just as a rinse.
