KINMEN, Taiwan, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor Inc. received recognition for nearly 50 liquor products at San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) 2018 and Ultimate Spirits Challenge (USC) New York 2018, on the heels of the Best Baijiu honor granted to the company for its Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor at SFWSC 2016.
Staying true to traditional liquor making craftsmanship and the unique pure grain-based solid-state fermentation process
The Kaoliang liquor is stored in underground military tunnels that have been converted into cellars where a constant temperature and level of humidity is maintained. The exceptional storage environment helps create the unparalleled naturally-aged Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor.
Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor uses high-quality wheat as the base material to create the square-shaped distiller’s yeast. A hole punched in the middle of the yeast helps enhance the cultivation process. Releasing the yeast at just the right time allows the liquor-producing microorganisms to grow on the yeast.
San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018, a leading international alcoholic beverages contest, saw a record number of 2,469 types of liquor from over 65 countries and regions across the world compete at the event, while more than 1,000 products from over 30 countries and regions were evaluated at USC New York 2018. Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor has performed well at prestigious international spirits competitions over the last few years and has made itself known worldwide as an emerging liquor brand.
With these honors, Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor is well positioned to expand into international liquor markets. In addition to Hong Kong, Taiwan, mainland China, Cambodia, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, the USA, and other countries and regions where the company's products are already available, Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor is expanding into additional markets in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East.
About Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor Inc.
Kinmen, an isolated island that was once a battlefield, has suffered through several wars. In 1952, when a troop of 100,000 soldiers were quartered on the 153.1-square-kilometer island, Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor was established to address the drinking needs of the soldiers. With over 60 years of experience, Kinmen has become a leading liquor brand boasting a market share exceeding 80 percent in Taiwan.
Putting the resources from the community back into the community, as part of its commitment to corporate social responsibility, Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor remains eternally grateful to all those who have supported the brand through the years and continue to do so. As an expression of that gratitude, the liquor producer has launched several public welfare initiatives with the aim of giving back to the Kinmen community. Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor believes that being grateful for the support received and doing one's bit to repay the world through public welfare programs will go a long way in helping the company expand into international markets.
