Fun, Furbies and Freebies from Friends of 1573

Enjoy 1573 with some free red sunglasses from my Panda friends



Celebrate with 1573 Liquor:

(Chinese Distillery with its name on the new Arena at the Australian Open)

Why 1573?
It is the year during the Ming Dynasty when they first started making Liquor, one of the oldest in China.

Luzhou Laojiao (official sponsor for 5 years at AO) is the name of the brewery.

Where is it from?
Sichuan, China (a province which is best known best for its super spicy cuisine)

Style and Taste
In its pure form - the clear liquor is more than 50% Alcoholic.

It is one of the most premium forms of "baijiu" as it is called in China.

Some say it has the strong scent of fermented peaches.


Where can I try some at the Australian Open?

The public can try a cocktail with the clear baijiu mix in a tasty glass. Served at "Nobu" and "Rockpool: Bar and Grill" plus a couple of the other fine dining establishments there.

If you have a special invite, there is even a 1573 bar located just behind Rod Laver stadium.
