Chinese Liquor

It is not just the grape wine bottles which we are drinking up before moving to Bangkok. I have a small collection of exquisite Chinese liquors given to me over the years by Chinese and Taiwanese friends.

The sorghum based spirits are wonderful though Western people often have difficulties appreciating the scent (some say it smells, well it does: of Sorghum of course). The Shandong liquor was smooth as silk. For ‘Gu Jing Gong Jiu’ you need to be in a youngish suicidal mode and not afraid of headaches.

‘Maotai’, if it is the real stuff, is not only expensive, but a very nice drink. During my time in Beijing we drank a lot of rough ‘Er Gou Jiu’, but the bottle below is a ‘de luxe’ version.

Unfortunately, the bottles cannot come to Bangkok, so we enjoy them now. Soon our reserves will be gone and we can start anew to collect them. Thanks god that I have so many friends in Mainland China and Taiwan.

    My father-in-law received Gi Jing Gong Jiu as a gift from a Chinese colleague. It was made in Anhui (where my father-in-law will be moving for work).

    What is the actual liquor? I thought it was a whisky but it was white in color. It had a sweet pineapple scent and tasted wonderful. Luckily no one else likes the flavor so I get it all to my self.

    Is is whisky? Is it fruity?
