Chu Yeh Ching Chiew

This is a medicinal flavored baijiu, apparently based on a fen jiu (shanxi province specialty?), with bamboo flavoring and other Chinese medicines.  It’s very much like a bamboo liqueur, which sounds weird, and is weird.  It’s candy-sweet with a heavy medicinal front end. Bonus: the liquid is yellow-green in color, too.  It’s a big departure from the standard pure-white jet fuel.

This might be technically ‘Medicine Aroma,’ which uses a secondary fermentation process with rice qu and herbs.

Buy it: I found it at Olive Supermarket in St. Louis, which has a great selection of affordable brands. Where else can it be found? Feel free to contribute in the comments.
