Shaoxing Rice Wine Ben Yuan

Semi dry, crystal clear, with nutty aromas and a mellow sweet taste, Ben Yuan pairs well with almost all types of cheese.

Shaoxing rice wine is known locally in Chinese as ‘old wine’. This is how my uncle in Shaoxing called it. Aged in ceramic jars since 2013, breathing and maturing over 10 years to achieve it’s elegant and subtle flavour.


Ben Yuan is 100% made from natural ingredients and contains no caramel or other colourings. Naturally amber in colour, a poetic sunset reflection on a shimmering river: “The golden willows by the riverside, are young brides in the setting sun; their glittering reflections on the shimmering river keep undulating in my heart.” (by Xu Zhimo)
