(Finding baijiu outside China can be difficult. The “Buy Jiu” series aims to help. Any feedback on these posts is welcome.)
Phnom Penh residents / visitors in search of baijiu, and plenty of other delicious beverages, can find them at Lucky Supermarket. The photo above shows some bottles at one Lucky outlet.
(Note: The photo was provided by Paul Mathew, a bartender who has a good deal of experience with baijiu, and provides — at this link — some basic background on this spirit and what ingredients work with it.)
The Lucky options range from the ubiquitous inexpensive Red Star to pricier baijius from Wuliangye, Kweichow Moutai and Shui Jing Fang. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
For more about Lucky supermarkets, check the company website here. You can also follow it at this Facebook page, which includes regular fliers.
Founded in 2015, World Baijiu Day is held each August 9, with events in over 60 cities so far. Follow WBD on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And get in touch via spirit (at) worldbaijiuday.com.
