Kweichow Moutai

Kweichow Moutai Co., Ltd. is a world-known baijiu spirit brand; a partial publicly traded and partial state-owned enterprise in China, specializing in the production and sales of the spirit Maotai baijiu, together with the production and sale of beverage, food and packaging material, development of anti-counterfeiting technology, and research and development of relevant information technology products.

Kweichow Moutai is named after Maotai, a picturesque small town in the south-western Chinese province of Guizhou.

Moutai is hand-crafted and has complex aromas of 155 different flavours found in Moutai. The baijiu spirit can only be called ‘Moutai’ if it is produced in the Maotai province; a speciality of the location. This is where the company says its baijiu — distilled from fermented sorghum and rice — gets the magic touch.

The spirit is also called the “National Spirit of China” and has a tradition of more than 2000 years.  As of 2021, it is the largest beverage company in the world and China’s most valuable non-technology company. The company is now valued at 2.7 trillion yuan, or $421 billion. Globally, its market cap has not only surpassed all other alcohol distillers like Diageo and Constellation Brands but also Coca-Cola, which had long held the crown as the world’s largest beverage maker by market cap.
