Okay, this is a special kind of baijiu from south China. Baijiu is normally white in color, but this type is yellow. Why? Because they insert the baijiu into baby bamboo, which then grows up and infuses the alcohol with special flavor. They don't remove the alcohol from the bamboo, either. The package is actually a gigantic piece of a bamboo shoot, which you break open with a small wooden hammer (included).
The cool thing is that according to the information on the package, the process infuses the alcohol with "the spiritual energy of Heaven and Earth." That's right, the package uses the exact same word that I usually translate as "spiritual energy" in ISSTH.
By the way, the alcohol itself was delicious! Check out the pics:
