History of Wu Liang Ye (五 粮 液)
A Chinese Bai Jiu (Chinese Distilled Spirits) liquor dating back to the Ming Dynasty. The ancient cellar group of Wu Liang Ye 五 粮 液 is China’s oldest existing crypt-type fermentation pits group, passed down from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.).
The Wu Liang Ye 五 粮 液 Company Group, also known as the ‘King of Chinese Liquor Industry’, is situated on the bank of the Minjiang River, north of Yibin City, Sichuan Province in South-West China. It is known as the “First Major City along the Yangtze River”.
This superior spirit still follows the traditional production process, from fermentation in the aged cellars & years-long brewing to a final appropriate blending. Using this ancient production process, combined with modern techniques and a unique natural eco-environment production method, resulted in this top-quality brewed spirit.
