Chinese:

Choujiu is a type of Chinese fermented alcoholic beverage brewed from glutinous rice. It is very thick and has a milky white color, which is sometimes compared to jade.photo

Choujiu is an ancient variety of Chinese wine, and is possibly the original Chinese wine. It can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty, where it was praised by the poet Li Bai.[1][2] In ancient times, choujiu was referred to as or yùjiāng ().

In the modern day, the city of Xi'an is known particularly for its choujiu.

Doburoku (どぶろく / 濁酒) is the Japanese equivalent of choujiu, and in Korea gamju and makgeolli are similar.
