World Baijiu Day shots | Fifteen photos from around the world

By Jim Boyce | They came, they saw, they baijiu’d. Events from Stockholm to Shanghai and London to Los Angeles gave people a chance to try the planet’s most-consumed spirit as cocktails, liqueurs, infusions, foods and flights.

I’m still gathering photos but here are fifteen to start—from Tianjin, Beijing, Stockholm, Chengdu, Minsk, Hunawihr, New York and Shanghai. I aim to get a much bigger gallery up in the next week.

Thanks to all who participated this year: something like this really takes a lot of teamwork!

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)
