Founded in 1662, Lao Long Kou Wine enjoys a well-established reputation for being the winery with the longest history and largest base in north-eastern China.  In the early Qing dynasty, the wine was used mainly for royalty and served only to the emperors, namely, Kangxi, Yongzheng, Qianlong, Jiaqing and Daoguang, during their eastern tour of Shenyang.  The wine was also designated for use in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1959.

Using red sorghum from north-eastern China as the main ingredient, Lao Long Kou Wine has three major product series with more than 200 varieties, enjoying a favourable fame worldwide.

In 1999, its quality produce won the Grand Gold award at the Brussels International Wine Competition in 1999 and its two major products were designated for use during the Olympic Games in 2008.  That same year, the wine was included in China’s National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage, thanks to its unique traditional handcrafted brewing technique.
