28. Thompson’s Baijiu

Thompson’s Baijiu is the “first” baijiu to be made in the UK and is produced with 100% British grown sorghum grains.

The product is the result of a collaboration between Essex-based The English Spirit Distillery and local farmer Pete Thompson.

The UK-sourced grains were fermented in a way that mimicked the traditional processes used in baijiu production through laboratory conditions. Technicians at The English Spirit Distillery used enzymes before final distillation to produce the desired profile and aroma.
