drink

 
 

In Korea, soju is the everyman’s drink - an often rough alcohol, created from a mishmash of inexpensive grains and consumed by the shot like cheap tequila. But like tequila, traditional soju is seeing a revival, with artisan producers producing a high quality, clean rice spirit and aging it in traditional clay vessels for a new generation. I went to Seoul to see for myself.
