An Evening with Drink Baijiu and Ming River

What makes a Chinese spirit different from its Western counterparts? How is it traditionally consumed? And where does baijiu—the world’s most consumed spirit—fit on international bar shelves? Join The Museum of the American Cocktail and celebrated author Derek Sandhaus for a liquid seminar on Chinese spirits, and learn how, for more than 9,000 years, alcohol has shaped, and been shaped by, Chinese culture. Enjoy a guided tasting of five traditional baijiu expressions, three baijiu cocktails, and gourmet bites courtesy Downtown LA’s The Edison. After the program, have Derek sign a copy of Baijiu: The Essential Guide to Chinese Spirits, his landmark book on the national spirit of China.
