Would make a nice present for someone. I daresay it will keep it's 'distinct" flavor given its made from a grain (Sorghum) and not a grape or rice.


Depends on how well it was distilled I guess.


It's probably drink it but that's not a recommendation haha

For all the poor people who can't read that:


For Ergoutou, Red Star's the real stuff. There's a Niulanshan brand now as well. Never heard of Lihua or anything.

The Red Star factory used to be east of Dabeiyao (Guomao). As soon as you crossed the third ring you'd smell it. 

Oh, and Beijingers call ergoutou dēizi - you can use that to show off to your drinking buddies next time...

Good to know. I have had tried several (and even opened) bottles whiskeys a decade after purchase date. They have all been fine surprisingly! 

Usually supplied from aging relatives who keep bottles for the odd visitor. 


Grain based alcohol seem to keep with age if stored correctly. Grape based such as sherry and Port are a different story!
