The V.I.P. Jiu 8 recipe consists of nine ingredients personally selected by the Kangxi Emperor, one of China’s greatest ever emperors who reigned China from 1662 to 1722. Each ingredient in the recipe was purposely chosen by the Kangxi Emperor as to compliment one another. The tonic was intended to enter the stomach, spleen, lung, kidney and heart, to resolve dampness and Qi stagnation. Strengthening the yang and toning the blood, inducing tranquillity, nourishing the liver and expelling cold and fatigue. What Is Qi? (氣)
Were proud in the fact that we successfully resurrected the Kangxi Emperors recipe 300 years later in the UK, exactly as it was originally conceived. Deliberately opting not to take the easier commercial production route but instead painstakingly and passionately keeping its authenticity 100% intact during all aspects of its revival, all along forever mindful and respectful of its imperial pedigree.
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. It can also be used in cocktails and mixers as its strength of 58% ABV still shines when it has been diluted. It can used as a restorative as it was originally intended, or it can be mixed in with tea infusions, hot toddies, coffees and can be used as an ingredient along with other Chinese herbs when making a tisane or a decoction.
V.I.P Jiu 8 is historically, enjoyably and restoratively the best baijiu in the world. To fully appreciate and acknowledge this statment we positively encourage you sample other well known baijiu brands before sampling V.I.P Jiu 8.
