In this episode, we talk about Baijiu, part of Spirits Styles series by Bevcast.

Baijiu is a Chinese alcoholic beverage made from grain. Baijiu literally means "white (clear) alcohol,” and is a strong distilled spirit, generally 52% alcohol by volume (ABV), or 104 proof. Baijiu is a clear liquid usually distilled from fermented sorghum, although other grains may be used. For example, southern China versions may employ glutinous rice, while northern Chinese varieties may use wheat, barley, or millet instead of sorghum.
