By Jim Boyce | Hey, Hong Kong spirits trade people! If you are curious about or a connoisseur of baijiu, you should check out a master class being organized by Kelvin Tam this Friday. Tam is well-known for his work with the Single Malt Club and a fan of China’s national spirit.

“Miss Wu Xiao Ping, the renowned baijiu master distiller and blender, who designed Guo Jiao 1573, Jiu Gui, and so on, will be present to give insights,” says Tam, who adds that attendees will taste four baijius.

The class, the first of two planned this month, will be co-hosted by the Hong Kong chapter of the Society of Wine Educators. It will be held from 6:30 to 9 PM on Friday, July 6, in Kyoto Plaza in Causeway Bay, with a fee of HK$200 per person. Tam says the event is already overbooked but they might be able to squeeze in a few more attendees. If you are interested, contact him at 852-9553-8006 or
