Bars across London are set to celebrate China’s world-leading spirit with special drinks and menus for Baijiu Cocktail Week in February.

Original cocktails will be available at some of the capital’s top bars and restaurants to demonstrate the versatility of what is the biggest-selling spirit in the world but little known in the West.

Now in its third year, the celebration runs from February 5 to 14, tying in with Chinese New Year on February 8 – the year of the monkey. It is organised by London-based SeeWoo Foods, a specialist supplier of Asian food and drink.
