Maotai Town has particular climate-mild winters and hot summers, low wind and rainfall, but high temperatures and humidity. The distillery is located at the upper reaches of the Chishui River, where the water is the purest and there is a high concentration of micronutrients, which gives the liquor its unique, savoury taste reminiscent of soy sauce.
