Part 1 : Makgeolli, alcohol that's good for health

A very special party takes place in a garden in Pocheon, where alcohol is being fermented. It’s a makgeolli party, featuring Korea’s best makgeolli of every flavor and aroma. With makgeolli lovers in one place, it’s the perfect time to listen to six exciting stories about Korea’s oldest traditional liquor.

Makgeolli is the oldest alcoholic beverage in Korea. In the past, it was enjoyed by farmers who grew rice in the fields. Makgeolli gave them the strength to bear the hardships of farm life, filled their empty stomachs, and comforted their souls.

A village in Chungju in Chungcheongbuk-do Province is known as “Jangsu Village,” or “Longevity Village,” for its high population of senior citizens in their 80s or older. Nam Geum-ju, one of the residents, is 94, but still has amazing health and energy. Everyone here says that the secret to their long life is the makgeolli that they always have with their meals.

Is makgeolli really good for health? There are a number of published studies about the benefits of makgeolli, which is rich in lactic acid bacteria, enzymes, proteins, and vitamins. Makgeolli has been proven to strengthen the immune system, protect against cancer, infections, and aging, and contribute to skin care.

What’s most amazing is that all of these beneficial substances found in makgeolli are naturally produced during the noisy, bubbly fermentation process.

Rice, nuruk, and time come together to form Korea’s unique liquor, makgeolli. It is a precious drink that has guarded Koreans through their ups and downs, and is the epitome of healthful fermentation. Learn more about makgeolli’s strength here.
