About Drink Baijiu

Welcome to the world of Chinese spirits

Drink Baijiu is a platform dedicated to the study of Chinese spirits. Baijiu is the world’s best-selling category of liquor, but beyond China’s borders, it is too often overlooked. We believe that baijiu not only contains within it a world of flavors, but that it has yet to realize its full potential.

Our mission is simple.We want to share what we know about baijiu and empower others to expand upon that knowledge. By starting a conversation, building a community, and promoting those who work with baijiu, we aim to broaden the discussion about what a drink can and should be.

Join us and toast a tradition that spans more than nine thousand years. Ganbei!


About Our Partner

We are pleased to present Drink Baijiu in partnership with Ming River Sichuan Baijiu. Working with Ming River has allowed us to expand our reach, host educational events and hire the talented artists and designers that make this page possible. That said, Drink Baijiu is not a platform for promoting one baijiu at the exclusion of others. Our philosophy is that expanding global awareness of any baijiu advances the interests of all baijius.
