Khong Sedon alcohol to be exported to China

Khong Sedon Alcohol Distillery Sole Company signed on Feb 9 an agreement with Guangzhou Trading Company and Beijing Xinxiang Yulong Company on exporting Khong Sedon-branded rice whisky of the southern province of Saravan to China.

The agreement was signed by President of Khong Sedon Alcohol Distillery Sole Company Xayadeth Phanthong and President of Guangzhou Trading Company and Beijing Xixiang Yulong Company Li Xitao in the presence of Vice Governor of Saravan Phouthong Khammanivong, Governor of Khongsedon district Samai Phithisane, and representatives of relevant authorities. “Wishing to create jobs for people in Khongsedon district, the Khong Sedon Alcohol Distillery has asked the government to green light the establishment of a community small pot alcohol distillery complex to meet domestic and export demands,” said Vice President of Khong Sedon Alcohol Distillery Company Xayasack Phanethong.

“The establishment of the community industrial complex will yield benefits for all parties, promoting protection of the origin and tradition of longstanding small pot spirits, the quality of Lao white whisky and income generation for local people.”

Khong Sedon Alcohol Distillery was established in 2002 in Napheng, Khongsedon district, Saravan, as an original small pot alcohol producer. In 2005, the alcoholic product of the factory won a golden trophy from the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry. More people joined the alcohol production scheme of the company by distilling alcohol for the company to bottle, pack and sell to domestic markets.
