Kinmen Kaoliang Liquor Inc. (KKL) released another statement on May 31st in response to several media reports that KKL is producing its Kaoliang wine (sorghum wine) in China. In the statement, KKL emphasized that its fermentation starter cannot be duplicated perfectly. It is also not possible for any company to produce similar Kaoliang wine even with the wine-making formula. KKL assured the public in its statement that its core techniques have remained confidential.
KKL stated that the current production of its Kaoliang wine requires the wine-makers’ solid knowledge of traditional fermentation skills. More importantly, the fermentation starter plays the most crucial role in determining the quality of the Kaoliang wine. KKL’s fermentation starter only has two ingredients: wheat and water. There are two key factors in producing the highest quality and unique KKL Kaoliang wine. The first factor is the bacteria that grow naturally during the fermentation process in the fermentation room. The second factor is the diversity of the bacteria accumulated in the Kaoliang wine cellar. Any difference in the levels of bacteria grown naturally during the fermentation process will affect the quality of fermentation starter. After the fermentation starter is made, the bacteria will turn into enzyme. KKL’s fermentation starter cannot be duplicated because even if one attempts to mix wheat and water to make the fermentation starter, they will not be able to duplicate the same bacteria types. Therefore, it is not possible to duplicate KKL’s fermentation starter in a different location to this day. This is precisely the reason why KKL’s Kaoliang wine has been the leading Kaoliang wine in the industry.
KKL reiterated that it is a biotechnology company. The company does not have any “formula” as companies in the chemical industry do. KKL reassured the public that there is no need to worry about the leakage of its core techniques.
