Baijiu, also known as shaojiu, is a category of at least a dozen Chinese liquors made from grain.

Báijiǔ is a clear liquid usually distilled from fermented sorghum, although other grains may be used; some southeastern Chinese styles may employ rice or glutinous rice, while other Chinese varieties may use wheat, barley, millet, or even Coix lacryma-jobi var. ma-yuen (yìyǐ) in their mash bills.
