By Jim Boyce | London bar The Hide is returning for World Baijiu Day this year and bringing along sibling establishment Demon, Wise & Partners for the ride.

Paul Mathew, who has experimented with baijiu for years, including during a long stint in China, and who has taught several classes in London, said there will be tasters and cocktails at both bars on August 9.

The Hide will have complementary Moutai or HKB tasters for anyone who comes to the bar and wishes us ‘happy World Baijiu Day‘ on August 9,” says Mathew. He adds that Darling Monkey Nutter cocktails, made with HKB baijiu, will also be available at 20 percent off.

Likewise, Demon, Wise & Partners will also offer a taster to those offering a “happy World Baijiu Day” greeting on the ninth. The special cocktail will be Baijiu Blood & Sand, with HKB, cherry brandy, grapefruit and vermouth, at £8.

Mathew says he will also be a selection of baijiu brands at both bars for people to taste.

Sounds like a good way to try something new on a boring old Tuesday! Here are a few photos from last year’s event at The Hide:
