Chinese whisky

30thMar. × ’11

Maltinchina has been continuously under the impression that whisky has NEVER BEEN PRODUCED IN CHINA. It turns out this is not true. After talking last night to Raymond Li of Beijing’s Single Malt Club it seems that whisky was produced a long time ago in Qingdao by the same company that produces Qingdao beer.

Some expert baidu-fu later on, and I found some reports on this somewhat dubious enterprise… as well as some photos. Seems like it was mothballed some time ago, but there is a lot of stock maturing in that warehouse. Time for a trip to Qingdao I think…..

The full article (in Chinese) is available here. I’ll do a translation soon.
