Premium statesperson’s Chinese Spirit.
Nobody parties like the Chinese on fancy state banquets where the main star is an ancient Spirit – the Baijiu, generally made from sorghum. Moutai is a fascinating iteration, known all across China as a Spirit of opulence and luxury. The two-millennia-old hooch is the top gift among delegates and is to China what Sake is to Japan. It takes five years to produce a bottle of Moutai Baijiu: it’s distilled nine times, it spends three years in ceramic pots, and the entire production follows the Lunar calendar. When it isn’t greasing international relations, Kweichow Moutai breaks every ice before a conversation starts. The Chinese Spirit maker is so popular now, it even surpassed Johnnie Walker’s owner as the strongest booze company.
Now, Baijiu has a distinctive flavor profile a Westerner might not be familiar with – but that’s a fun advantage: exploring something completely novel! It’s Chinese tradition in a bottle and possibly one of the most beloved beverages. This particular expression is a rich blend of up to 200 Spirits. It won a double golden medal at the 2014 San Francisco World Spirits Awards and it’s a sumptuous and silky Spirit with floral and nutty notes. A peculiar landscape of flavors that’s worth exploring.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Kweichow Moutai Baijiu (200ml) and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
