What’s shakin, cocktail fans?
Welcome to episode 152 of The Modern Bar Cart Podcast! I’m your host, Modern Bar Cart CEO, Eric Kozlik. Thanks for joining me for this interview episode, where we sit down with the best and brightest minds in the spirits and cocktail world so that we can share their secrets with you.
This time around, I have the great pleasure to spend some time chatting with Derek Sandhaus (@dlsandhaus) – widely regarded as the English-speaking authority on Baijiu – a spirit that is produced in greater volume than perhaps any other in the world, and yet one that is largely unknown and misunderstood here in North America.
Derek is the author of two very important books on Baijiu, the creator of drinkbaijiu.com and is one of the driving forces behind the Ming River Baijiu brand, produced by the legendary Luzhou Laojiao distillery.
