Making you feel alive from South Korea for the first time

Soju is a very popular liquor sold in Korea, traditionally made by distilling rice and other grains. Since the 1960s, however, most soju has been made by diluting high-proof neutral alcohol from distilled sweet potatoes or tapioca to alleviate rice shortages.

One of the hottest brands in South Korea, Chum Churum (which translates to "like the first time") is popular for its added alkaline water, higher sweetness, and relatively lower alcohol content. This smoother and softer profile has been extremely successful and is particularly popular with younger drinkers in South Korea.
