When the venom interacts with the wine, it is slowly broken down. Since the snake venom is protein-based, it’s eventually inactivated by the denaturing effects of the ethanol in the alcohol.


蛇酒一般需要浸泡3到6个月才可以饮用。

(The process of creating wine containing poisonous creatures is relatively simple: take the critter of your choice, put into the bottle and proceed to pour Baijiu in, effectively drowning the creature.) Ordinarilly speaking, after 3 to 6 months, the poison from the animal will be canceled out and the beverage safe to drink.
