Soju is a famous Korean alcoholic beverage that contains ethanol and water. Most brands of soju are made in South Korea. Traditionally it was made from rice, wheat or barley. The modern producers somehow, have replaced the traditional recipe with other starches like potatoes, sweet potatoes or tapioca. It’s a clear and colourless drink which contains 16.7%-45% alcohol by volume. This beverage can be produced in the classic way of distilling that uses single distillation method, or by using chain distillation which is known as the modern way. Soju literally means ‘burned alcoholic drink’, referring to the heat of distillation.
