WHAT IS IT ?
Moutai is the most well-known brand of Baijiu in the world. It is considered a luxury item within Chinese culture, with a long and rich history.
The liquour is named after the town of Moutai in China where it is exclusively produced (Guizhou province). Much like Champagne or Cognac, Moutai, the spirit, can only be given that name if it is produced in the town of Moutai.
HOW IT'S MADE ?
Moutai is distilled spirit from only 3 ingredients: sorghum, wheat and water from the pristine Chishui river. Moutai's complex taste and aroma is highly attributed to the unique production process and ingredients which are harvested according to the Lunar calender.
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT IT?
The brand Kweichow Moutai was officially named as the 'National Liquour of China' in 1949 by Zhou Enlai, the first Premier of the People's Republic of China. Since then, Moutai has played a significant role in the history of China's diplomacy.
