Capital Spirits held a trial baijiu and cheese / meat pairing on Sunday as a warm-up for World Baijiu Day. The tasters included co-owners Bill Isler and David Putney and sausage purveyor Jonathan Alpart. We tried ten or so baijius with everything from Brie and blue cheese to spicy Hubei sausage courtesy of Alpart and pork, dried apple and sage sausage by Dustin Merrett, of deep-fried baijiu fame. The pairings range from “mmm” to “argh!”. Expect some of the former to make the final cut for August 8.

Founded in 2015, World Baijiu Day is held each August 9, with events in over 60 cities so far. Follow WBD on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And get in touch via spirit (at) worldbaijiuday.com.
