Recently, the General Administration of Customs of China has officially changed the English name of Chinese traditional liquor to “Chinese Baijiu” in China’s 2021 Import and Export Tariff Code. The new name appears on export documentation as of January 1st, 2021.
Over the years, Chinese traditional liquor has been lacking an official English name. Chinese spirits, Chinese distilled spirits, and Chinese liquor are all English names of Chinese traditional liquor. The new English name aroused a heated discussion on Chinese social platforms. 16 thousand Weibo users have offered enthusiastic comments about the decision under the hashtag . . .
