HKB baijiu was created as a “gateway” baijiu for the Western palate. Orson Salicetti, at New York City’s Lumos, uses it in this cocktail for its floral, lightly sweet notes, which complement the pear juice and liqueur.

Classic Drink. Modern Taste.
When a drinker from long ago found his spirit to be a bit lacking in flavor, eggs and sugar were mixed in and the result was the "Flip" cocktail. Another fellow solved the same problem by adding baking spices. Creating the "Toddy." But eventually someone was lucky enough to come across an exceptional whiskey and the subtle, understated "Whiskey Sling" was born. It's a cocktail crafted to highlight a spirit's taste. Like the crisp balanced flavor of Gentleman Jack. Twice mellowed for exceptional smoothness. It's just the whiskey the Sling was made for.
