Baijiu, China’s national liquor gets a toast from Spice World Hot Pot, the latest Sichuan hot pot franchise to hit Singapore. A collaboration with the Singapore China Baijiu company and Spice World Hot Pot, top Chinese Master Taster Ms. Xu Huan hosted key journalists in the appreciation of three of China’s most popular Baijiu brands – Moutai, Wuliangye and National Cellar Guojiao 1573. The masterclass session also included a DIY Baijiu segment whereby journalists got to create their own liqour using individual distilling kits.
Baijiu, infamously known as Firewater, is distilled from sorghum and rice. Water, sugar and yeast are added to the ingredients and fermented in clay jars buried underground. It is then distilled and aged for anywhere between six months to years, sometimes even up to 50 years. Baijiu is commonly consumed during festivals, weddings, celebrations and business meetings. It is usually served neat in a shot glass and drunk in one gulp. Toasting rituals or Ganbei (cheers) accompany every Baijiu drinking occasion.
Spice World Hot Pot stocks a full range of Baijiu. Hot pot being a communal dining experience makes Baijiu a perfect drink accompaniment for any group gatherings. In conjunction with Singapore’s National Day which also falls on the same day as World Baijiu Day, promotions on Baijiu will run for the month of August and that includes Moutai at $329 (usual price $369), Wuliangye at $329 (usual price $369) and National Cellar Guojiao at $299 (usual price $329). Additionally, every diner stands a chance to win a free meal if they draw their table number from Spice World’s lucky draw box.
To further encourage imbibing, Spice World Hot Pot has redesigned their outdoor patio with custom-made tables and chairs from China, specially curated for more conducive drinking and chilling especially when there are long queues at the restaurant.
