If you’re Chinese, today is a remarkably lucky day. In Chinese, 9/9 is pronounced “jiu-jiu”, which sounds like “long-long” or “for a very long time”, so the number 9, thanks to its pronunciation, is associated with longevity and eternality.


All of which makes today an especially auspicious date for couples to get married - back on 9 September 2009, tens of thousands of Chinese couples rushed to tie the knot. It all sounds like a great excuse to mix an Appily Married, a honey-apple-vodka blend that works perfectly with the grainy notes of a good wheat vodka.
