The superior quality of SHEDE’s premium wine and the oriental aesthetics in the products enhanced the sensory experience, and became a hit of the event.
The Chairman of Fosun International, Guo Guangchang, delivered virtual New Year’s wishes. He highlighted in his speech that “Fosun has been committed to promoting Chinese products and traditional culture to the world. The culture of Chinese spirits and wine has a long and storied history. On the eve of the Chinese New Year, a cup of wine is emblematic of the table in every Chinese home. I believe everyone can appreciate the assertive and mellow taste of SHEDE’s spirits, and I also look forward to introducing SHEDE’s products to all parts of the world.”
In recent years, SHEDE SPIRITS expanded its internationalisation plan and proactively went global with the support of Fosun’s global vision and vast corporate resources. As a result, SHEDE’s products have stepped into the international stage. With the help of a cup of spirit, SHEDE SPIRITS hopes to offer a time-honored taste of spirit for global consumers, and share with the world the lifestyle with oriental aesthetics. SHEDE also hopes to spread Chinese wisdom by familiarising consumers from more countries and regions with Chinese spirits to foster the exchange of Chinese and Western cultures.
