China’s Yanghe Distillery, one of the leading baijiu producers, has recently taken a cultural trip to France to promote China’s baijiu culture.
Led by Yanghe’s chairman, Zhang Liandong, the delegation visited UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris on 3 July as the first stop of this cultural trip.
Zhang is hoping that Chinese baijiu, like Chinese tea, can be added to UNESCO's list of intangible cultural heritage.
The delegation opened a photography exhibition named "Discover the Capital of Baijiu" the next day, a total of 50 photos taken by international photographers were being displayed.
Former French ambassador to China, Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, said when attending the exhibition that baijiu is an important part of the Chinese culture, and the world can see the beauty of Chinese culture through baijiu.
The photos were taken in Suqian city of Jiangsu province which ishome to Yanghe Distillery. Suqian was awarded the title of "Capital of Baijiu in China" in 2012.
Yanghe Distillery is located in an area with very good source of water where the grand canal, two rivers and three lakes meet.
