During the forum, Swellfun told the liquor-making history of over 600 years of Swell Street distillery site through case sharing. And it has reserved the original site and appearance systematically, using the real production scenes to reappear the traditional liquor-making technology of Swellfun liquor with the history of over 600 years, through which to showcase a “live” museum of integrating actual production process and the exhibition in a perfect way. It is identified as a typical example of ancient liquor making and liquor stores, which can be called as “The First Distillery”. It is an unlettered history record of the development of Chinese liquor industry. Nowadays, while Swellfun insists on the inheritance of liquor-making techniques and ancient cellars, it pays more attention to the liquor culture connotation of Chinese cultural spirit form.

Participants of the forum had the exchange and discussion on the two aspects of intangible cultural heritage protection and craftsmanship inheritance by tightly surrounding “Core Values of Cultural Confidence” with the theme of “Adhere to Cultural Confidence and Inherit the Beauty of Craftsmanship”. Leaders and guests spoke out freely and expressed their views, and the forum achieved complete success. Experts and scholars believe that it is the future path of going towards cultural confidence for the development of Chinese excellent traditional culture from the perspective of cultural self-consciousness, while craftsmanship is the source of power of the future development of traditional culture. Promote the innovational development of traditional culture and the vitality of culture is innovation.
