About Ming River

Ming River Sichuan Baijiu is an award-winning grain spirit crafted by Luzhou Laojiao, China’s oldest distillery. It employs time-honored methods passed from master to apprentice since 1573 and is blended for use in traditional serves and cocktails. It perfectly encapsulates the Sichuan region’s celebrated culinary heritage with distinctive notes of tropical fruit, star anise, and peppercorn.
