    Vinn Distillery out of Wilsonville, Oregon makes a delicious Baijiu that is great straight up and they have some very tasty cocktails made with it. It makes a awesome Bloody Mary. It doesn't hurt that the family who run the distillery are some of the nicest people you could ever meet.

    I kind of got a taste for it when I visited China 10 years ago.

    During WWII, my father, Col. Graham E. Schmidt, was stationed in South West China, with the 54th Chinese Army (Nationalist). He remembered and passed on to me a profound respect for what he and the others he served with called BYE-GAR. or Mou-Tai. I'm guessing it's the same spirit. And it's really rough! They used it in their Zippo lighters, as well as drank it!

    My American palate doesn't like bugs either, doesn't mean that's a bad thing.
