CNY drinks: Toast to the Year of the Tiger with these limited edition spirits
Eat, drink and be merry this season with the help of these celebratory spirits.
Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations have been a little bit more subdued in recent years, no thanks to the pandemic. This year will be no different, but even if intimate gatherings are now the name of the game, it doesn’t mean that your festivities need to be a downer.
Raise a glass with your loved ones and usher in the Year of the Tiger with these limited edition CNY spirits. Or gift them to your nearest and dearest. Cheers!
