Product description
Kweichow Moutai Golf Liquor 2021 is a special edition Moutai that commemorates the return of golf at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after over 100 years. Golf has become a game known for its class and sophisticated players. Golf Moutai Liquor is exquisitely packaged with yellow kraft paper packaging. The matte white bottle with golf ball impressions is a must for Moutai collectors.  

Maotai or Moutai is a style of baijiu, a distilled Chinese liquor (spirit), made in the town of Maotai in China's Guizhou province. The Maotai Town distillery region is located at the upper reaches of the Chishui River, where the water is the purest and there is a high concentration of micronutrients, which gives the liquor its unique, savoury taste reminiscent of soy sauce.  Produced by the state-owned Kweichow Moutai Company, the beverage is distilled from fermented sorghum and has been drunk since the Ming dynasty.  Maotai was declared China's 'national liquor' in 1951, two years after the founding of the People's Republic of China.  It has won many international awards including two gold medals separately at the Paris International Exhibition. 

The production technique of Moutai is ancient and unique. It inherits the essence of ancient brewery techniques and shines with the innovation of modern science and technology.  Moutai is considered the gift to give and the drink of choice to toast with on special occasions, especially big business deals.  Moutai is served at all Chinese state banquets and is often presented as a diplomatic gift.

Kweichow's 'Golf' features fresh notes of soy sauce, which are pronounced at first.  The main aroma is multifaceted, with fine notes of fruit, plants, and grains, mixed with floral and yeast notes.  Moutai pairs well with any Chinese cuisine, but also with Korean grill, Japanese sashimi, and caviar. Indeed, as Moutai grows in popularity worldwide, sommeliers and chefs are incorporating it into food and cocktail recipes, finding it an extremely versatile ingredient.  Moutai should be tasted at a temperature between 20 and 25°C, in tulip-shaped glasses to concentrate the aromas. Pinch your Moutai glass at the base with all five fingers to avoid altering the temperature.
