Wuliangye means “five-grain liquor,” while Yibin is the city in China’s Sichuan province where the spirit is made, and the company is China’s second most valuable baijiu maker by market cap. Shares have risen 150% so far this year, buoyed by 2018 profit growth of 38% to $2 billion. Remarkably, Wuliangye’s $6.1 billion revenue is earned entirely in China. The question going forward? Whether the mealy liquor can find an audience abroad.
