From the village of Moutai in the Guizhou province of China, Moutai has acquired through centuries of transmitting its traditions and refining its craftsmanship a reputation as one of the world’s finest spirits. A protected and unique natural environment deep in the mountain region of Guizhou province, the use of local sorghum, of water from the famous Chi Shui river and of quality wheat, combined with the strict respect of traditional production methods, confer to Moutai its unique qualities and characteristics. During the five years of production and ageing period, Moutai slowly develops its fine, round and elegant soy aromas, with a full aftertaste and a great aromatic persistence that remain in the glass long after it’s been drunk. Each Eau-de-Vie of Moutai is kept separate according to its age, production cycle and aroma, ageing slowly and developing its own individual character and personality. With painstaking attention and precision, the team of master blenders will then start assembling those various Eau-de-Vie together, creating step by step and batch by batch a final blend with the wonderful harmony of taste an aromas that characterizes a great spirit. Through their skills and craftsmanship, the master blenders will ensure each blend is thus a perfect expression of Moutai’s unique style and quality. Exclusive to selected duty-free shops and produced in limited quantities each year, the Legendary China Collection is the ultimate expression of Chinese literature and liquor culture. Many of the Classical Chinese Poets, such as Li Bai and Du Fu celebrated, with genuine conviction, the joys of drinking baijiu – the Chinese traditional liquor, such as Moutai. Thus, as a tribute to China’s greatest authors, Legendary China Collection embodies China’s eminent poems evoking spiritual pleasure and spirituous enjoyment. Legendary China Collection is presented in a beautiful Chinese porcelain bottle with original poem’s calligraphy and painting.
