What is Soju?
Soju is a clear and colorless Korean distilled alcoholic beverage. It is usually consumed neat. Its alcohol content varies from about 12.0% to 53% alcohol by volume (ABV). Traditionally, most brands of soju are produced in the Andong region, but soju made from other regions or countries also exists.
While soju was traditionally made from the grain of rice our Soju is made with Grains and Oats. While soju is traditionally consumed straight, a few cocktails and mixed drinks use soju as a base spirit. Beer and soju can be mixed to create somaek (소맥), a portmanteau of the words soju and maekju (맥주 beer). Flavored soju is also available. It is also popular to blend fruits with soju and to drink it in "slushy" form. Another very popular flavored soju is yogurt soju (요구르트 소주), which is a combination of soju, yogurt, and lemon lime soda.
