Marco Polo may have been the first Westerner to try Chinese alcohol.
While journeying through ancient China, Polo tried a "clear, bright and pleasant" alcohol that was, in his words,"so excellent and flavourful that the Chinese wish for no other." The enchanting crystal-clear spirit known as baijiu (bye-j'oh) is the Middle Kingdom's best-kept secret.
Today HKB wants to share this fascinating discovery with the world. Like Marco Polo did centuries earlier, the HKB team ventured into China's hinterland on a quest. They set out to find the finest Chinese spirit for foreign palates; only the finest ingredients and purest blends would do.
Some secrets are just too good to keep to yourself.
