A nice World Baijiu Day shout out on Portland Today last Friday by Michelle Ly of Vinn Distillery. She appeared on the show to explain baijiu to the hosts and make a few cocktails, including a tasty looking watermelon concoction.
The Ly family has made baijiu for seven generations and is the sole commercial producer of this spirit in the United States. The team at Vinn will get together with Danwei Canting from 4 PM to 9 PM for some baijiu fun on August 9. You can find the Vinn tasting room at 222 Southeast 8th Avenue (503-807-3826 / info (at) vinndistillery.com).
World Baijiu Day is held each August 9. See our 2018 event list here. The 2019 list is coming soon. Follow World Baijiu Day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Get in touch with Jim Boyce via spirit (at) worldbaijiuday.com.
