liquor Leegangju
Leegangju is a fine alcoholic drink with yellowish color. In the past it was categorized as a rice wine, but now it is classified as liquor. It is a fine mix of freshness of pears, hot ginger, turmeric that helps the mind feel sober even when we are drunken and the particular taste of cinnamon. Adding honey helps the liquor to pass our throat even more smoothly. The taste is sweet and spicy at the same time, strengthens stomach and does good for liver as well. Distilled, the liquor gets to have even more profound flavor as it gets old. As a fine liquor that has no aftereffect and barely produces hangover after overdrinking, Leegangju has been designated as an Important Intangible Cultural Properties in 1987.
