Booze You Need To Know: Baijiu

Discover the latest Chinese’s the most popular drink on Earth!

You’ve probably never heard of it, but Baijiu (by-shzoo) is the most imbibed booze on the planet (thanks to it being China’s go-to get-chewed juice). Made from sorghum, it’s north of 100 proof and is shot down until you fall down. Along with cheap sneakers and Dollar Store stock, the popular Moutai brand is now flooding American shelves. And despite its stiffness, the clear liquor is super tasty: It’s teeming with cherry, citrus and vanilla flavors and a velvety, round mouthfeel. Yes, it’s from China, but Baijiu is the worst thing to drink with greasy Chinese food. Trust.
