V.I.P Jiu 8 The Imperial Baijiu ™

V.I.P Jiu 8 – The Story

For over twenty years I have searched the world for lost, undiscovered and looted Chinese works of art to repatriate back to China.

The story of V.I.P Jiu 8 begins on my birthday, the 2nd of July 2014. It is a tale that begins with a wrongly attributed, chipped and cracked wine cup that hid an astonishing secret dating back to imperial China, a secret connected to its longest-reigning emperor, Kangxi, who ruled China from 1662 until 1722.

The Kangxi Emperor is credited for completing the conquest of China, stabilising the Qing dynasty and ushering in a long period of great prosperity and peace. He was the single most powerful person on earth at the time, ruling over a vast empire and over 100 million subjects.

The journey of V.I.P Jiu 8 starts in Northern England and unfolds across multiple continents, with amazing highs and life-threatening lows. It involves a series of events that have led to the re-birth of a 300-year-old imperial Chinese liquor that hails from within the walls of the Forbidden City.

Historically the best!

Kangxi EmperorThe V.I.P. Jiu 8 recipe consists of nine ingredients personally selected by the Kangxi Emperor, one of China’s greatest ever emperors who ruled China from 1662 to 1722.

The Kangxi Emperor was the second emperor of the Qing dynasty, credited with completing the conquest of China and presiding over one of China’s most glorious eras. He was the single most powerful person on earth at the time, ruling over a vast empire and over 100 million subjects.

He took the throne at age seven, on February 7, 1661, and unlike many previous emperors of China, was interested in both Chinese culture and Western thought. He could be considered one of the best-educated men of his time, and was also voraciously focused on bettering himself.

Sadly, he suffered from health problems. The ill effects began as early as age 35, when his vision began to deteriorate. At around age 40, he contracted malaria, which led him to become very interested in medicine.

Unfortunately, traditional Chinese practices such as acupuncture, moxibustion, massage, and medicinal tonics had no effect. He reportedly disliked acupuncture, hated the smell of moxibustion formulas, thought medicinal massages were useless, and despised the tonics. He didn’t believe in Taoist longevity practices, and was sceptical of many other aspects of traditional medicine.

It was no coincidence that nine ingredients were used in the Kangxi recipe, as nine is regarded as a particularly auspicious number, and is closely associated with the emperor. In fact, the number nine often pops up in imperial designs. For instance, the metal studs on the gates at the Forbidden City are usually arranged in nine rows of nine. The number is also associated with dragons, which were believed to have one hundred and seventeen scales, eighty-one of which were male (9×9) and thirty-six of which were female (9×4). The ‘nine sons of the dragon’ are also a key element of Chinese mythology.

Enjoyably the best!

In the making of V.I.P Jiu 8 we only use the heart, the very best of the ethanol. You can taste the sweetness of the heart. By using only the heart, we cut out all the poisons, fats and oils that lurk in the heads and tails. Not many baijiu producers can say the same. To put it in layman’s terms, the heads and tails are where the nasties are and the heart is where the pureness is.

How To Drink V.I.P Jiu 8 - Versatility

V.I.P Jiu 8 is an extremely versatile baijiu; it can be drunk neat as it has a great taste, both on the palate and on the throat and a long pleasant after taste.

The truth is that alcohol has been used medicinally for more than five millennia. For instance, it is mentioned in one of the first medical books in China, the Yellow Emperor’s Internal Canon, which was penned in 300 B.C. There is even modern clinical data that indicates that moderate consumption of baijiu may speed up blood circulation and improve cardiovascular and circulatory function. Other studies found that certain components in baijiu have antioxidant effects, can enhance the immune system, and reduce triglycerides. Other health benefits have been suggested, such as benefits to the digestive system and reduced likelihood of blood clots.
