There is a manufacturer of traditional alcoholic beverages which have become popular among people all around the world. Since its establishment in 1925, Hoegok Brewery Agriculture has been passed down as a family business over three generations. It has produced makgeolli, a traditional alcoholic beverage that is made with 100% Korean rice. It has produced makgeolli by keeping the original taste and modernizing the manufacturing facilities. And after going through the long fermentation period at a low temperature, makgeolli can have a clean taste without bad smells or hangovers. The company has developed Yemi-ju, which is made with white pearl rice produced based on the agreement with Andong Nonghyup, and Gobaek-ju. We meet Hoegok Brewery Agriculture, a company that has spent a lot of time on developing new technologies that can keep the original flavor of Korean traditional alcoholic beverages.

Myeongin Andong Soju is a manufacturer of a traditional Korean alcoholic beverage that has been inherited by a great master. Andong Soju was first made about 700 years ago during the Koryo Dynasty. And since then, the tradition has been inherited as a home-brewed liquor by keeping the original taste and flavor. Unlike other kinds of soju made by dilution, it is made with 100% Korean rice to provide a healthy and tasty alcoholic beverage. We look into Myeongin Andong Soju, which has galvanized efforts to keep the tradition as one of the representative alcoholic beverages in Korea.
