Food Pairings

Shaoxing Rice Wine is best served slightly warmed to release its unique flavour and aroma.

Pairs well with heavier, meatier dishes, especially those with a touch of sweetness and funk like slow braised beef and chicken dishes. It also brings out spices and umami in seafood like sashimi, BBQ prawns and steamed crabs.
