Different rice varieties for different rice alcohol

In China, there are many different rice alcohol.
They are produced from different rice!
It is exactly the same as for wine made from different type of grape!

Unfortunately big shopping center only sell one or two variety of rice alcohol: baijiu, sometimes mijiu.
In the countryside local people still have the know how. They produce different alcohol from different rice all the year long. For instance shuijiu or dongjiu is produced in winter. It is sweet and sour.
Let's hope that these traditionnal alcohol will prevail under the pressure of shopping centers.
