The two-week World Baijiu Day countdown is underway and venues in 17 cities are slated to have events, with more to come. Some highlights from the past few days:
- Singapore bar L’Aiglon (see photo above) will have baijiu-inspired cocktails on that day. More on this soon. By the way, if any baijiu suppliers in Singapore want to get involved, please let me know (spirit (at) worldbaijiuday.com).
- Rooftop bar Shen on The Bund in Shanghai will feature a pair of bajiu cocktails plus food pairings. More details here.
- Pop-Up Beijing will have a pop-up baijiu bar on August 8 that includes Taizi, a New Zealand baijiu, in the lineup. Thanks to Glenn Schuitman and the efforts of New Zealand Trade & Enterprise for securing the supply.
- And last but certainly not least, we now have a World Baijiu Day poster–click here for the pdf–thanks to Ian Burns and Pierre-Louis Marchal at RedStar Works.
This has been my busiest work week this year but things will calm down next week, so expect lots more posts, including a write-up of the first WSET baijiu master class, held in London last week.
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.
