Soju is a very popular spirit sold in Korea that is traditionally made by distilling rice and other cereal grains. However, since the 1960s to alleviate rice shortages, most soju has been produced by diluting high strength neutral alcohol from distilled sweet potatoes or tapioca.

Jinro is the top selling spirit company in the world after exploding in popularity with their “chamisul” brand of soju in the 1990s. Jinro soju is so popular that its name is synonymous with the product itself much like Kleenex brand is to tissue.

Tasting Notes

Jinro Plum Soju is a light refreshing alternative to flavoured vodkas with subtle sweetness and spice as well as a pronounced plum flavour. 

Method

Soju is made by distilling alcohol from fermented grains. Traditionally made with rice, Soju can also be made from any combination of sweet potato, barley, wheat, or tapioca. After the base wine ferments for about 15 days or so, its distilled by boiling the filtered, mature base wine in a sot (or gamasot, a large, heavy cauldron or pot common in Korean cooking) that’s topped with a soju gori- a tall distilling pipe. Jinro Plum Soju is made by diluting the full strength soju with alkaline water and adding plum flavour.
