Gin also has an alias "gin", which is also translated as "gin" in China. Gin is known as the heart of cocktails and it is the world's largest spirit. It was originally born in the Netherlands and later introduced to the UK. After being introduced to the UK, because of the sharp increase in production, it quickly gained a high reputation worldwide. Compared with British gin, the aroma and taste of Dutch gin are thicker.


Rum was born in the Republic of Cuba. Because pirates in the Caribbean love to drink it, it is also called "pirate wine". In terms of taste, rum has three flavors: light, medium, and strong. Compared to medium and thick rums, light rums are more compatible with other cocktail materials, so light rums are usually used as cocktail bases.

Chinese baijiu is also a world-renowned spirit, but baijiu is not the base of cocktails. Because baijiu has a strong aroma, it is difficult to reconcile with other cocktail ingredients.
