North Korea’s Hangover Free!

There is a God! No more hangovers equals more partying. Only thing that is left is male contraceptive pills and free money!

The state newspaper Pyongyang Time (great start) says the “suave” liquor will spare you holding your head up when you wake and dragging your sorry ass over the porcelain throne, that surprisingly is despite boasting 30%-40% alcohol.

The holy brew as I’m now calling it, is reportedly made from a type of indigenous ginseng called insam and glutinous rice, and cultivated by an organic farming method.

Giving North Korea’s history with outlandish claims its best to take this with a pinch of salt.

According to the paper – the spirit “is highly appreciated by experts and lovers”.

The drink derives from Kaesong (Kay-Song) Koryo (Core-Yo) insam – a natural herb thought to have medicinal properties. According to the Pyongyang Times, replacing sugar with the scorched, glutinous rice removed the bitterness from the insam and, crucially, the hangover – whatever it is, I hope it tastes good and keeps me partying well into the night! 

Turn UP!!

*Now if only I could get some without going into North Korea.
