CAMUS AND MOUTAI, OVER 10 YEARS OF PARTNERSHIP
Cyril Camus was living in China in the mid-1990s when he initially become familiar with and entranced by baijiu by and large, and MOUTAI.
Persuaded of MOUTAI’s potential in the universal duty-free channel, and astonished by its absence of worldwide acknowledgment, he moved toward the producer in 2003.
With a huge responsibility to quality and to the brand’s principles and customs, the MOUTAI groups are devoted to their art. Those characteristics inspired French Cognac House, which offers similar qualities. Naturally, they entered a distribution agreement on the duty-free market with Kweichow MOUTAI Co., Ltd.
Together, CAMUS and MOUTAI combined their craftsmanship, ability and market understanding to develop an item that was perfectly equipped for travel retail customers: MOUTAI “Little Batch Blend.”
Created in 2005, it assumed a significant role in MOUTAI’s strategy to be presented as a universal extravagance brand to export markets. From its unassuming beginnings, when it was accessible in only a couple of airports and border shops, the brand was soon found in prominent duty-free outlets over Asia, making a genuine buzz in the travel retail channel. The renewal of the two organizations’ association in 2009 fortified MOUTAI’s brand extension, venturing into Europe and North America by 2010 and winning a first gold medal at the World Spirit Awards in 2012. In 2013, another travel retail exclusivity was presented with the launch of the new MOUTAI constrained release Legendary China Collection.
