Aroma : 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.
Flavor : Spicy pink peppercorn, with pineapple, anise and a bright and briny middle note. A long, mellow and a slightly earthy finish.
We met in China and fell in love with baijiu. It offered us a world of unexplored flavors and experiences. It changed how we thought about drinks. We had to spread the word.
People told us baijiu could never succeed internationally. We ignored them.
The world beyond China knows almost nothing about baijiu, and we have devoted ourselves to correcting that. Derek penned the first English-language book about baijiu. Bill, Matthias and Simon opened the world’s first bar dedicated to baijiu.
With Ming River we’re introducing the world to an authentic expression of Sichuan baijiu that reflects over twenty generations of skill and a true taste of the region. We have partnered with China’s oldest continuously operating distillery, Luzhou Laojiao, to bring you the original Sichuan baijiu. Together we’ve taken a tradition that began in the Ming Dynasty and created a shared future.
