The Great Wall & The Silk Road Cocktail

The Great Wall & The Silk Road CocktailThe great wall of China is a series of fortifications built across the northern borders of China to protect territories of the empire against nomadic groups from the steppe. Several walls were being built from as early as the7th century BC. Selective stretches were joined together by Qin Shi Huang the first Emperor of China in 220-206 BC, but little of this remains. Many successive dynasties have built and maintained different stretches of border walls. The most well known were built by the Ming dynasty 1368-1644.

Apart from defense, the wall was also used for border control which allowed the imposition of duty on goods transported along the silk road and to control immigration. The wall was enhanced by watch towers and troops barracks. The path of the wall also served as a transportation route.

Today, the great Wall is recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history

Lot Number 128V.I.P Jiu 8 - The Full Story

The story of V.I.P Jiu 8 begins on the 2nd of July 2014. It is a tale that begins with a wrongly attributed, chipped and cracked wine cup that hid an astonishing secret dating back to imperial China, a secret connected to its longest-reigning emperor, Kangxi, who ruled China from 1662 until 1722.

The Kangxi Emperor was the second emperor of the Qing dynasty, credited with completing the conquest of China and presiding over one of China’s most glorious eras. He was the single most powerful person on earth at the time, ruling over a vast empire and over 100 million subjects.

The journey starts in Northern England and unfolds across multiple continents, with amazing highs and life-threatening lows. It involves a series of events that have led to the re-birth of a 300-year-old imperial Chinese liquor that hails from within the walls of the Forbidden City.

The V.I.P. Jiu 8 recipe consists of nine ingredients personally selected by the Kangxi Emperor. The recipe has lain hidden for three hundred years. It is unique in the fact that it is an ancient recipe that is brand-new to the market and does not copy or taste like any other spirit. It is historically, enjoyably and restoratively imperial.
