Hana Makgeolli is an artisanal Korean rice wine producer based in Brooklyn, NY. By using only organic rice, nuruk, and traditional brewing methodologies, they are able to achieve complex flavor profiles that show the breadth and depth of the entire sool category. Their brews strike an intricate balance between deep grain flavors and naturally occurring lactic acid with stronger alcohol by volume that is characteristic of jeongtongju that can only be found in Korea.
Alice Jun and John Limb set their sights on being the first domestic producer of traditionally made, artisanal makgeolli in 2017. Together, they are champions for Korean food and drink and plan to further establish and expand the Korean sool category here in the US.
