Taking Chinese native sorghum baijiu as its base liquor, MIX is becoming popular around the world.
Jiangxiaobai MIX is a mixed drinking project officially launched by the company in 2019. Its base liquor is sorghum baijiu produced locally in China, which is light in flavor, pure in liquor body, and smooth in taste. Its liquor body was tasted and praised by Chinese baijiu master Hu Yongsong, Du Xiaowei, and Zhang Wujiu. They described it as “pure and elegant with delectable fruit fragrance, soft and sweet mouthfeel”. Teng Lei, a Chinese first-class sommelier, also commended that “it smells so comfortable with a hint of pine nut fragrance and cream fragrance, and has a soft and sweet mouthfeel.”
Creatively blending sorghum baijiu with soft drinks such as fruit juice and soda can enhance the drinker’s drinking experience and richness of palate.

The mixed drinks made by Jiangxiaobai baijiu as base liquor with various juices and beverages is so popular, attracting nearly 250,000 people to taste it. Since then, for international markets, Jiangxiaobai has launched seven cocktails with sorghum baijiu as its base liquor and three easy-to-make mixed drinks that mixed with soft drinks after repeated experiments and research.

In July 2022, the mixed drinking way became popular in Korea, Malaysia, Europe and other regions. Many internet celebrities showed their DIY drinks with Jiangxiaobai on social media platforms, such as “Jiangxiaobai + Ginger Ale”, “Jiangxiaobai + Lemon Soda” and “Jiangxiaobai + Juice”.
In 2019, the Minister of Tourism of South Africa tasted Jiangxiaobai MIX and spoke highly of it. Many South African consumers also said that Jiangxiaobai MIX was rich and refreshing in taste, which was close to their drinking habits and was a good choice for daily drinking.
