Buffalo Trace Announces Latest Experimental Collection - Baijiu Style

Buffalo Trace has announced the limited release of a Baijiu style spirit aged in new American oak casks. For those unaware (like myself), Baijiu is regarded as the largest selling spirit in the world, make up an estimated 31% of global sales... which is crazy because I have never heard of it until right now. Baijiu is a clear liquid usually distilled from fermented sorghum (or sometimes rice) and uses a distinct type of Qū for fermentation. Per Wikipedia, Qū is a type of East Asian dried fermentation starter grown on a solid medium and used in the production of traditional Chinese alcoholic beverages. Whew, a lot to unpack. Let's talk about the Buffalo Trace release.
