Jinro As a drink
Jinro 20 is distilled beverage, made from rice, tapioca and sweet potato. Jinro is crystal clear and colorless and it doesn’t contain any impurities nor artificial ingredients. Final quality is achieved by multiple filtration through activated charcoal filtration (bamboo charcoal).
In South-Korea where Jinro is originally from, this type of distilled beverage is called "soju" and it is super popular. In fact Jinro’s soju is the most popular spirit alcohol in the world. Soju is typically a party drink and enjoyed in a good company as neat, or as a mixer for cocktails and drinks. With food Jinro is best accompanied with spicy meat and fish, Korean and Asian food and barbeque.
Popularity of soju is increasing all over the world. In Asia, Australia, Russia and USA it is already very popular and recently Jinro has started to gain popularity also in many parts of Europe. For consumers, Jinro is a great choice, pure and nice tasting alcohol without complexity.
