      EVENT DETAILS
      Derek Sandhaus - Drunk in China: Baijiu and the World's Oldest Drinking Culture

      Baijiu, literally meaning white or clear liquor, has been brewed in China at least since the 1200s and has long occupied a central role in Chinese culture. Though it outsells vodka and whiskey combined, this grain alcohol is only now becoming available in the U.S. and Europe. To prepare Western palates, Sandhaus, author of Baijiu, and co-founder, with China's oldest continually operational distillery of Ming River Sichuan Baijiu, offers a detailed primer on the spirit’s past, present, and future. Ranging throughout China and beyond, he reports from breweries, hotpot joints, and speakeasies, interviewing a wide range of distillers, brewers, archaeologists, and ordinary drinkers.
