Tasting Notes

Made from wheat and sorghum in the Guizhou region of China, the distillation time is shorter to capture the delicate aromas. This expression is mild and mellow.

Staff Pick Notes

Baijiu had always been a hole in my spirits knowledge, which I imagine is true for most American spirits lovers. But anyone who has a desire for the unique and distinctive should be familiar with Moutai. Moutai is actually a town in China, and all production comes from there. Made predominantly from organic, locally sourced red sorghum with some wheat finishing out the mash bill, it undergoes a natural fermentation and is aged in clay to mellow it out for bottling at an intense, aromatic 53% abv. It's tremendously umami, brothy on the palate, sometimes feeling like it's outright salty. But there's a richer orchard fruit underneath, like fig and pear. The flavor I'm left with then turns into the dark, chewy corner of a pan of brownies, that almost-charred bittersweet cocoa, with warming spices coming in through the finish.
