Moutai (or Maotai) is distilled from fermented sorghum.  It's similar to soju (Korean) and shoju (Japanese).  The most famous Moutai is Kweichow Moutai.  I have a dozen or so bottles at home.  Moutai originated, I believe, in the 17th century.

I only drink it when I am in China (a very common ceremonial drink; and I usually over-consume!) or when Chinese friends are visiting.  Interestingly, I have never had a hangover when drinking it, although I do drink a lot of water.

As for the moutai at Costco, I have not seen it before.
