TAIPEI -- A newly built cellar in a former military tunnel on one of the outlying islands of Matsu will be opened to tourists from May to October, the Matsu Liquor Co. said yesterday.
The company has spent NT$20 million (US$662,140) to build the “Tong-Yung” cellar to store liquor produced in its Dongyin distillery, located in Dongyin Township on the most northern of the islands of the Matsu group.
The new cellar can accommodate 336,000 liters of spirits and is now the biggest storage facility of the Dongyin distillery, according to company officials.
The new cellar, along with the famous “Tunnel 88” in Matsu's Nangan Township, are successful examples of transforming former military facilities into business and tourist attractions.
