The Ilpoom Jinro is a premium soju with an excellent history of nearly a hundred years. The Jinro soju is not just a typical green bottle of soju, the process of crafting and creating this soju drink is intricate and captures the fragrance and flavour of the drink excellently.
Traditionally, jinro soju is an alcoholic drink from Korea. Ilpoom Jinro used what was only produced during the distillation, discarding the undiluted liquid that is produced at the beginning and end of the distillation process. To remove unwanted odours and impurities, Jinro uses a freezing filtration process. This process produces a distilled crude liquid of 100% pure rice from the distillation.
The soju flavours produced are crisp yet soft on the throat. This smoothness has a delicate yet complex profile that Korean consumers prefer.
The Ilpoom Jinro soju alcohol content is at 25%.
This award-winning soju received the Grand Gold Quality Award from the Monde Selection Quality Institute in the Selection Spirits and Liqueurs category in 2019 and 2020. As South Korea’s leading liquor maker, Hitejinro, the company, strives to retain the top position through the continuous production of top quality soju. Hitejinro also produces Chamisul.
