Kweichow Moutai Baijiu (aka Maotai) is the most popular spirit in China with a rich history. During the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), Moutai became the first Chinese liquor to be produced in large-scale production with an annual volume of 170 tons. Moutai is named after a town in Guizhou Province, where wine making has a very long history. China's prime minister Zhou Enlai served Moutai to entertain president Richard Nixon during the state banquet for the US president's visit to China in 1972. It was also served at the meeting between President Obama and the current President of China, Xi Jin Ping in California, June 2013.
Kweichow Moutai Baijiu is the leading luxury brand produced in China with 50% Sorghum and 50% Wheat. Crystal clear in color, Moutai opens with a floral nose accompanied by notes of miso and a hint of ginkgo nuts and brunt rice. The palate is dry with a silky mouthfeel that encompasses all the aromas from nose with a undertone of baking spice that lingers through the finish.
