Koko Black's Collaboration with Australian Baijiu
Baijiu 白酒 (pronounced “bye-joe” and meaning “white spirit" in Mandarin) has been made in China for over 500 years. It is the national drink of China savoured over a good meal with friends or on special occasions, and the world's bestselling spirit. Over 15 billion liters of baijiu produced every year - more than vodka, gin, rum and tequila combined. That’s the spirit!
While respecting Chinese traditional baijiu distilling process, Good Spirits Co. has put an Australian spin on the world’s most popular spirit. Their baijiu is influenced by the Chinese baijiu tradition and recipe but made with love in Victoria using local premium ingredients and rich spirit-making traditions.
We have paired this beautiful drink with our handcrafted chocolates, just in time for Lunar New Year
100% AUSTRALIAN MADE
Just like our chocolates, the Good Spirits Co. is made usuing locally grown ingredients: sorghum as the main grain, wheat and barley in smaller quantities.
“We have put an Australian spin on the world’s most popular drink”, says Varvara Kuraeva. “Our baijiu sits between the traditional style and something that might also appeal to Australian and global markets. We specifically worked on achieving a smooth flavour with clean, natural and citrusy aromas and a dash of soft sweetness that leaves a smooth lingering aftertaste”.
“At a time when consumers are thinking more about what goes into making a product than ever before, we are proud to say that the whole production and packaging process of our baijiu takes place in Australia,” says Artem Zubenko. Being avid supporters of local businesses, the Good Spirits Co team sources labels, bottles, screw caps, boxes, marketing materials and other creative elements that go into making their baijiu from local companies and family businesses.
