Have You Tried the World’s Most Popular Alcohol?

Jinro is a brand of a South Korean liquor called Soju. Producing 161 million gallons (608 million L) annually Jinro is also the most sold spirit in the world. In fact, it outsells Smirnoff, Bacardi, and Johnnie Walker combined!

Traditionally, Soju is a drink that starts out as rice wine (much like Sake) before getting distilled into a liquor. Today stage 1 of Soju is made not only with rice, but alternatively wheat, barley, potatoes, sweet potatoes, or tapioca.

Johnnie Walker is the World’s Most Popular Blended Scotch…and that’s OK!

People like to look down their noses at blended scotch, because Hollywood leads us to believe that drinking blended scotch is like drinking scotch with training wheels.

In reality, blending scotch allows distillers to offer a product that will be more consistent over time. Single-malt scotches are subject to variations in flavor that stem from variations in the climate & skill of the distiller.

Johnnie Walker is the most sold blended Scotch in the world.
