Kind of an interesting article here about the common Chinese baijiu coming to Western countries. If you haven’t had it…you really shouldn’t. According to the article, it is the most commonly consumed liquor in the world, but I’ve had it a few times and it is nasty. I even went to dinner with a millionaire, who bought a very expensive bottle of “the good stuff”…and it still wasn’t very good. I saw a guy there pound a bottle of it giant swigs. I’m surprised he survived…and wouldn’t be surprised if he is no longer with us(this was 8 years ago).
The article says it has 110 proof, but I’ve seen it go up to 78% alcohol.
If you see this stuff in the stores, skip it.
