The hard stuff

Never thought I'd be contributing to a wine thread, but I'm wondering whether any of you serious drinkers know where I could get some Chinese liquor. Not sake, that's the Japanese version. In China it's called "baijiu" (meaning white alcohol) and I think the brand most likely to be exported is called Maotai. I've asked around here and no one has ever heard of it. It's clear, and incredibly strong - up to 150 proof. I don't really want to drink it all the time; I just think it'd be nice to have a bottle around for occasional fits of nostalgia and second-home-sickness.

Never apologize. Never explain.
