If you’re the type to party all night, especially on Fridays and Saturdays, then you might want to try this North Korean alcohol, which they say would not leave you with any hangover the following morning.
North Korea has released the news through its state-owned newspaper Pyongyang Times that “Koryo Liquor” will have you drinking to your heart’s content without worrying about a possible hangover.
The communist country refers to this liquor as a revolutionary type of liquor made from ginseng and glutinous rice. Scientists scrap the sugar in making this alcohol. The blend of ginseng and glutinous rice is the secret behind the hangover-free experience when taking this liquor.
The report further elaborated on the type of ginseng that is needed to make this wonderful blend. It stated that Koryo Liquor is using a “six-year-old ginseng” Kaesong Koryo insam.
According to the report, the ginseng has the highest medicinal effect. Jong Hwa Sun also wrote that experts and lovers of alcohol highly appreciate the blend. The scorched rice makes the liquid totally suave.
Reports have it that Koryo Liquor has an alcohol content of 30-40 percent. On the other hand, regular beer that you can buy only has 3-10 percent. Wines, depending on the type, would have alcohol content between 8-14 percent.
