 Liquor Baskets

In the white spirit maturing process, storage vessels are really important. Generally, pottery and stainless steel are used as the base liquor storage vessels, but there is another kind of storage method with a thousand years' history in the liquor industry, that is "Liquor basket". The saying "Liquor basket does not dry" stems from this.

The making of liquor basket is complicated and all processes must be gone through strictly in accordance with the working procedure. First, select well-proportioned twigs of chaste trees, weave a large liquor basket with the twigs before their moisture disappears, make pulp with egg white, sticky rice juice, lime and other materials for pasting rice paper, stick rice paper on the inner wall of the liquor basket and dry it in the shade to consolidate the surface, examine whether there is liquor leakage, and then use it to store white spirit, so it is called "liquor basket". The making of every liquor basket will go through complicated working procedure, and the making of a large liquor basket needs 3-5 years.

In the process of liquor storing, the organic substances on the surface of the inner wall of liquor basket interact with liquor, which is good for the esterification and optimization of liquor, volatilization of higher alcohol and action of other favorable microorganisms in the liquor, thus making the liquor that has been stored in a liquor basket have a mellow taste and rich body. At present, there are 55 liquor baskets in the storehouse we are visiting, and each can store liquor base of 15 tons.
