The local liquor store (LCBO Canadian government bootleggers :-)) cannot get Shaoxing Rice Wine but they can get Glutinous Rice wine. Is there any similarity? Is it the same? Is it a good substitute? I would hate to order it in (have to buy a case) and find it is NFG. I have been using a medium sherry.
Google tells me what glutinous rice wine is, but not how it relates to Shaoxing.
Moderators...please do not move this thread to Wine. I use this wine for cooking, not drinking.
