(NEWSER) – While some North Koreans have kept busy exchanging propaganda packages with South Korea and supposedly making H-bombs, other good citizens have reportedly invented the thing the world really needs: a ginseng-derived booze that doesn't cause hangovers.
Citing an article in the Pyongyang Times, CNBC notes that the brewing process uses burned, boiled rice to concoct the 30- to 40-proof product, now being referenced as a "national scientific and technological hit," per CNN. "Koryo Liquor, which is made of six-year-old Kaesong Koryoinsam [ginseng], known as being highest in medicinal effect, and the scorched rice, is highly appreciated by experts and lovers as it is suave and causes no hangover," the Times article on the new product reads, via the Guardian. The tincture is also said to "[exude] national flavor," the BBC reports.
