Chinese Rice Wine

Chinese Rice Wine, also known as mijiu, is a Chinese alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of rice starch that has been converted into sugars. Typically with a higher alcohol content than traditional wine, the process of making rice wine is closer to the mash process of making beer or whiskey. Rice wine is used in Asian cuisine in the same way grape wines are used in western cuisine.

Claret

Claret is a name primarily used in Britain to refer to red Bordeaux wine. The term Claret derives from the French clairet, a now uncommon dark rosé, which was the most common wine exported from Bordeaux until the 18th century. It is a protected name within the EU, describing a dry, dark red Bordeaux, accepted after the British wine trade demonstrated over 300 years’ usage of the term. The French themselves do not use the term, except for export purposes.
