Kweichow Moutai Jackie Chan Dragon - Limited Edition, production Vintage 2012-2014 -500ml
In China, Moutai (or Maotai) is known as ‘the national liquor’. It is made from a grain called red sorghum at Kweichow Moutai Co, Ltd, the country’s most famous baijiu (Chinese spirits) distillery. Maotai is served at all Chinese state banquets and often presented as a diplomatic gift. Moutai is produced in Maotai Town, which is located within Guizhou (Kweichou) Province. Like champagne, only the baijiu produced in Maotai Town can be called Maotai, and more specifically only the baijiu produced by Kweichow Moutai Co, Ltd. Other Maotai is called Maotai Town baijiu. Exactly when the first formal liquor production sites in the town of Maotai were established is not known, but one source dates a distilling workshop to 1599 during the Ming dynasty. In the early 1950s, local government merged Chengyi, Ronghe and Hengxing to establish the state-run Moutai Distillery. Since then, it has undergone multiple expansions.
