The raw materials are boiled seven times and condensed nine times without addition of any water to create a more purified and aromatic liquor. Then it is kept for half a year and tasted. If it is not up to the standard, it will be distilled again and again until it is. The whole process lasts about one year, after which the liquor aged for several years. Usually several grades of Moutai are blended into a single brew before being put on the market.
