Also known as the original Moutai, the Moutai Kweichow drink is made by China’s most valuable publicly-listed company. Not to be confused, Kweichow Moutai (company) produces the Moutai Kweichow liquor and although the liquor brand is one of China’s most prestigious brands, not many outside China have heard about it until now. It was the favourite drink of China’s founding father Mao Zedong who served it as state dinners when US President Richard Nixon visited China in 1972.
Also awarded the honourable title of National Liquor of China, the highest accolade for any wine or spirit in the country, Kweichow Moutai reviews are normally rated 5/5 stars. People love it! In fact, in 1974, the US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, told Deng Xiaoping that “I think if we drink enough Moutai we can solve anything”. It is also often presented as a diplomatic gift.
