Maotai old liquor is a regular customer at auction
Sotheby’s auction house in London announced that on June 18, a case of 1974 sunflower brand Maotai was sold at a price of 1 million pounds (about 9 million yuan), more than five times the price estimated by experts.
The auction house said that 14 bidders bid to push the price to 1 million pounds, far higher than the previous estimated price of 200000-450000 pounds, which is also the highest auction price for a single batch of Maotai liquor outside China. The winner was an Asian collector, and the auction house did not disclose the true identity of the buyer.
Sotheby’s said that the auction included 24 bottles of 1974 “sunflower” brand Maotai liquor. During 1968-1978, the sunflower logo temporarily replaced the previous “flying Fairy” logo for export sales.
It is understood that “sunflower brand” is the third trademark put into use by Maotai distillery. In 1967, sunflower brand appeared and ceased to be used in 1975“ “Sunflower brand” Maotai liquor is basically used for export, and its output is very scarce. The exported sunflower can be divided into “big leaf sunflower” and “small leaf sunflower”. The production period of “big leaf sunflower” is earlier than that of “small leaf sunflower”. The production time of “big leaf sunflower” is less than one year, and the output is less. In 1974, the number of “sunflower brand” Maotai liquor produced was the least, which made Maotai highly scarce in the market and “sought after” in the auction house
It is understood that this is only the first batch of Maotai liquor auctioned by Sotheby’s. Since the beginning of this year, Maotai old liquor has been sought after by collectors at many auctions.
