Kweichow Moutai 1952 WuXing
(0 review)

This is a extremely rare Kweichow Moutai WuXing (Vintage Five-Star), bottled for the Chinese domestic market June 6th 1952, one year after the founding of Kweichow but still produced at Hengxing, run by Lai Mao (known for the record-selling 1935 bottle, the oldest Moutai known in existence), one of 3 distilleries which eventually formed Kweichow Moutai. In September 1952, three months after the release of this bottle, Moutai was one of 4 liquors/wines which were selected in the national wine appraisal held in Beijing. Between 1952 and 1966 Kweichow Moutai was sold in 3-mold ceramic earthenware decanters, produced in Guizhou, nicknamed Bamboo Joint bottles. 

Content and % ABV are not stated, such information first appeared on the Feitian bottles in 1976. We estimate this to be a 545ml bottle with 55% ABV.

    In China, Moutai (or Maotai) is known as ‘the national liquor’. It is made from a grain called red sorghum at Kweichow Moutai Co, Ltd, the country’s most famous baijiu (Chinese spirits) distillery. Maotai is served at all Chinese state banquets and often presented as a diplomatic gift. Moutai is produced in Maotai Town, which is located within Guizhou (Kweichou) Province. Like champagne, only the baijiu  produced in Maotai Town can be called Maotai, and more specifically only the baijiu  produced by Kweichow Moutai Co, Ltd. Other Maotai is called Maotai Town baijiu. Exactly when the first formal liquor production sites in the town of Maotai were established is not known, but one source dates a distilling workshop to 1599 during the Ming dynasty. In the early 1950s, local government merged Chengyi, Ronghe and Hengxing to establish the state-run Moutai Distillery. Since then, it has undergone multiple expansions. Today, the share price of Kweichow Moutai Co, Ltd continues to rise. According to a report by Fortune, ‘Maotai baijiu’s fiery flavour and potential to appreciate in price is driving blistering demand. That in turn has pushed its market value to more than $145 billion, well past British whisky giant Diageo Plc.’
