Fine Chinese Liquor Moutai·Chinese Tonics


The sales of Fine Chinese Liquor Moutai and Chinese Tonics were arranged on the first auction day of Xiling Yinshe 2020 Spring Auction. The high popularity and enthusiast biddings of the first two auctions ensured a stellar commencement of this spring auction. Fine Chinese Liquor Moutai continued its good word of mouth and advantage of the brand of Xiling Yinshe, boosted the liquor consumption and reinforced the market with strong confidence and vitality. Among them are the popular ‘Iron Cap Series’ which were sold with high premiums. The rare Kweichow Moutai made in the early 1970s (cotton paper package with sunflower mark) even set off a bidding battle across the auction platforms until it was sold for RMB 552,000, around two times higher than its estimate of RMB 300,000.
