Tempting tastings at Koryo
Visitors are offered choices that might be new to some palates. “We have our own raspberry wine,” says Jin, “which has won an award for its bottle design as well as our raspberry rice wine that won silver in this year’s WSA Wine Challenge,” the marketing representative continues. Visitors to the booth (5H5-02) commented very favorably on the raspberry beverages.
Korean usually drink wine as a accompaniment to a meal. Jin is also showing a plum wine which comes in its original form or as a gold flake version. As well as wine, there is chum-churum, a traditional grain-based Korean liquor, not far the faint-hearted, and rice beer which comes in two strengths.
Koryo also represents a variety of Korean non-alcoholic drinks, including Lotte beverage, snack food and instant noodles called Ramyun.
