By Jim Boyce | The UK got its own baijiu bar this year when Fu by Epicured opened in Liverpool. And, says manager Andrew Robinson, the venue has special plans for this year’s World Baijiu Day.
“For World Baijiu Day, we have brewed our very own beer, an IPA infused with Du Kang Baijiu,” says Robinson. “If I say so myself, it’s pretty good!”
Robinson says Fu is mulling new cocktail ideas, although he already offers a good range of options, from Emperor Park Swizzle to Fu Julep to Ren Ren, a concoction with Red Star erguotou, Cherry Heering, lemon and passion fruit.
Customers can also try the house infusions, sample the three flight of baijius, or pick and choose from among Du Kang, Luzhou Laojiao, Red Star, and more.
“We always have at least ten baijiu on the go at any time,” says Robinson.
Here’s Team Fu at this year’s Liverpool Food & Drink Festival:
