Shaoxing wine for cooking

Post by Salmoriaty » Wed Aug 01, 2012 9:38 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew where to buy showing wine from.

I've been to a few Chinese stores and they don't stock it as it's a wine...... has anyone bought it over the internet?

Unfortunately, even Chinese people can only bring Shaoxing wine from China to Finland. I miss it so much.

Just remembered it contains alcohol hence you could only get it from Alko, maybe send them a request for the product to be brought in or substitute with a dry sherry.

It is also possible to import alcoholic beverages which are not in Alko’s catalog — and which Alko is not even planning to add into their catalog — through Alko, as a “special order”.

fully understand. I could find Chinese cooking wine much better in some very conservative Muslim countries easier than in Finland.

And I find Finland more peaceful than some very "religion of peace"ful countries. Religious (and earthly) regulations can be nonsensical, but some people will follow them regardless. Some regulations make sense and still people decide to ignore them. Such is life.
