Baijiu Distiller in Sichuan Sees Heady Times Ahead
2017 was a boom year for the liquor market in China, with Chengdu, Sichuan-based baijiu distiller Shuijingfang Liquor Industry Co Ltd among the prominent gainers.
Prices of high-end baijiu varieties rose in 2017 in line with the ongoing consumption upgrade in China. Shuijingfang plans to promote its premium products to meet the demand for pricy, high-quality rice wine.
Shuijingfang recently launched a new high-end variety of baijiu, the Chinese white liquor, called Forest Green. It requires over 10 years of storage first before it matures and develops into a fragrant, thick and pure-body liquor with a touch of crispy, refreshing taste of bamboo.
