Kweichow Moutai is the most revered of Chinese liquors, awarded the honorable title of National Liquor, the highest accolade for any wine or spirit in China.
Moutai is a fascinating and intriguing product made in South-West China in a town by the same name. For over 2000 years it has been produced in the Guizhou Province of China. Generations and generations of families have passed down the secrets of its highly intricate production methods, which has earned it the reputation as China’s best quality and most fascinating spirit. People who work to produce Moutai usually spend their whole lives perfecting their craft.Moutai is highly regarded amongst people in Asia, is a prestigious gift and is a traditional drink to have with Chinese food, the same way one would enjoy high-quality Sake with Japanese food.
Made of organic sticky sorghum (similar to wheat), it takes five years to produce one bottle of Moutai. It is distilled 9 times and then aged 3 years in ceramic pots. The production cycle mirrors the Chinese lunar calendar. It is a complex beverage with a truly unique taste and history.
Enjoy the distinct flavours of soy sauce, pear, walnut and almond and a mellow yet pleasant after-taste.
