History in a Bottle: The Story of Moutai

In China, there is an alcohol that’s been credited with improving international relations and uniting opposing empires. Described as the “drink of diplomacy,” it takes five years to produce a single bottle, and for nearly 400 years it has been distilled using traditional techniques out of a single town in China’s Guizhou Province. The beverage is Moutai: a strong, clear spirit that has won 14 international awards. This is the story of a fine local drink that doubles as a history book.

This Great Big Story is a paid contribution by Guizhou, China.
