Voted hot. I have seen rice wine selling for £14 or more , in Loon Fung shops in London. If it was £4 I would have bought several.

Plenty of Chinese supermarkets sell it around that price or cheaper. I can’t imagine it costing £14 unless it was a huge bottle hiyou.eu

£14? Were they in gold bottles? or more than a litre? Wing Yip sells this same one online for just over £6. There's no way Loon Fung would allow themselves to be undercut by such a large amount

This particular brand isn't usually sold that cheaply though. £4 is a good price for it. It's a well regarded cooking rice wine brand.
Has anyone cooked with it? How does it compare to cheap cooking sake, which I normally use but this is half the price?

What's brand is it? I can't see on the website and it's just a picture of an incredibly nondescript bottle.

Cooking sake and cooking chinese rice wine are quite different ingredients though. I'm no expert but I use this regularly to add a little sweetness and 'smokiness' to meat dishes, particularly stir fried minced pork or beef. (Pairs very well with chicken too as rice wine chicken is a fairly common Chinese dish). One simple recipe I use at home is:

500g meat (sliced, diced or minced)
1 capful of rice wine
1 teaspoon of Soy sauce (preferably from a Chinese brand like Lee Kum Kee rather than a westernised one like Blue Dragon)
1-2 teaspoons of Dark soy sauce (")
100g Chopped onions/peppers (this just enhances the taste - you can go without it)
1 teaspoon of Five spice powder

Stir fry it over medium to high heat to evaporate the alcohol.

Taijade. There are others, but this is one of the best in terms of depth of taste and quality.
Shao Hsing just means 'Rice Wine'. I bought a bottle today for £2.99 in my local Chinese Supermarket. The big one in Bristol underneath the Water Sky restaurant has plenty of brands to choose from £2.50 up to about £7. The Tesco near to water Sky sells rice wine for about £3. £4 is okay for Asda, I suppose.
