Moutai is the name of the famous Chinese alcoholic beverage, which is being produced by Kweichow Moutai Company, a fully state-owned one. It is difficult to establish the exact date of the beginning of production, but the name “Moutai” was assigned to the drink in 1704 by decree of the Qing dynasty emperor. In 1915 Chinese vodka won a gold medal at an exhibition in San Francisco, and in 1951 it was awarded the title “national alcohol of China”. Throughout its history, Moutai has won more than 20 main prizes in major international competitions, not to mention local events.
