This is a highly popular alcoholic drink in South Korea, and it is usually made with rice, wheat, and barley, but lately potatoes are also appearing as one of the main ingredients. It is a clear and colourless drink, with 16.9% alcohol. The taste is very mild and reminiscent of sake type beverages. The taste and flavour is clear, with a hint of malt and citrus, making it very pleasant to drink. After taking a sip, there is no sensation of sharpness or spiciness; the well-blended taste fades after a second in the mouth.
An interesting fact is that Koreans have very strict rules of etiquette when it comes to drinking soju. When receiving a glass from an elder, one must hold the glass with two hands (with the left palm at the bottom and holding the glass with the right hand) and bow the head slightly. It’s popular to mix soju with beer or to buy it already flavoured.
