The deputy general manager of the Kweichow Maotai Group, a liquor served at official occasions and state banquets, is under investigation, the local discipline watchdog said on its website on Wednesday.

According to southwest China's Guizhou Province's discipline watchdog, Fang Guoxing, the deputy general manager and board director of Maotai, is being probed for a "suspected serious violation of discipline".

Fang has been at Maotai since January 2013 and was once the secretary of the Communist Party of China's Renhuai City Committee.

Maotai, distilled in the town of Maotai in Renhuai City, has been considered the country's top liquor brand and a status symbol for decades.

The intense counter-corruption drive in China, which is targeting both high-ranking "tigers" and low-level "flies", has spread across many fields and industries.
