Wet Bar Wednesday – Baiju

I’ve run across a couple of articles on this alcohol from China known commonly as baiju (pronounced buy-joe, I think).  It interests me both because of it’s potency and it’s derivation from sorghum, a species of grass.  I’ve tried one liquor store in town and they didn’t have it and hadn’t heard of it, but that wasn’t too surprising.  I’m going to try a couple of places that seem to be better educated on world liquors and see if they have some.  It has an alcohol content of 40-60%, which is pretty impressive!

Anybody have experience with baiju before?
