Kweichow Moutai is a legendary spirit from China with a rich history. Haven't tried it yet? Well, you're in luck! Moutai are giving you the chance to win one of their three legendary spirits. Keep scrolling to find out how you can win...
Moutai is the best-known premium baijiu in the world. It is a distilled Chinese spirit with a complicated and distinctive taste. It has been around since the Qing Dynasty is made in the town of Moutai in the Guizhou province where the climate, water quality, soil and microorganisms vividly combine to create a unique brewing environment for Moutai.
The drink is distilled from fermented sorghum and is characterised by its aroma and complex yet delicate notes. Unsurprisingly, it has become a favourite with mixologists as its multifaceted taste blends itself perfectly to cocktails, creating a unique character.
During the stay home period, Moutai Ireland launched the campaign 'Have you created a Moutai cocktail yet?'. The aim was to encourage bartenders to create their own exotic cocktails with the spirit. A number of experienced bartenders from well-known bars, hotels and restaurants around Dublin took part. They teamed the spirit with simple ingredients including fruit juices, coffee, elderflower tonic, gin and many more to unleash their creativity with exciting results.
The campaign was very successful and has encouraged people to mix their personalised Moutai cocktails. Let’s get inspired and try to make one at home for yourself.
