[Details of the next Moutai Workshop can be found at the end of this editorial]

If you have never heard of Moutai, you soon will. Moutai Workshop is designed for you to understand Moutai more! This baijiu is a pivotal drink in its native land. Kweichow Moutai sells high-end baijiu, a distilled Chinese liquor spirit made in the town of Moutai in China’s Guizhou province.

Moutai‘s outstanding flavor has made it one of China’s most popular liquor brands! Every year, the demand for Moutai exceeds the supply, making each bottle in the market limited. Did you know that Moutai is not just a product for consumption, but also for collection? In 2017, Moutai overtook Diageo (Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Baileys and etc.) to become the world’s most valuable liquor company by market cap.

Big thank you to Artisan Glam for sponsoring FOR BELOVED ONE face masks to the participants of the workshop.

It is commonly served at lavish state banquets or presented as a diplomatic gift to government officials. Practically everyone drinks this in large-scale events and it can be seen as a status symbol in China’s culture!

History Of Moutai

The history of Moutai goes way back to the Qing Dynasty in the 17th century when they discovered a unique method to make baijiu. The People’s Liberation Army forces then partook in it when they camped at Moutai during the Chinese Civil War. After the victory in the war, the government then consolidated all the local distilleries into one state-owned company called Kweichow Moutai. That is how the origins of Kweichow Moutai came about.

In 1949, Moutai was served at the founding of the People’s Republic of China and it was subsequently named a “national liquor” in 1951. Ever since then, Moutai became the drink of diplomacy for greeting foreign dignitaries.
