Luzhou Laojiao (Chinese: 泸州老窖) is a famous liquor in China. It is a strongly alcoholic (more than 50% alcohol) but clear liquid with a sharp aroma of fermented peaches. It is famous for being brewed in an environment with a unique clay composition that gives the spirit its famous aroma and palette.[1]

History[edit]

The history of the distillery dates back to 1573 in the Ming dynasty, and it is one of the oldest Chinese liquors that is still in production.[2]
