Trip Detail Info

Overview

Samhae Soju is the only traditional liquor brewery inside Seoul. It is run by Master Kim Taeksang who was designated as Seoul City's Intangible Asset No. 8 for his expertise and skills in traditional Korean liquor brewing. The brewery officially goes back to his grandfather and unofficially to many generations ago as his family lived and made family liquor in the area for centuries. The brewery makes many different liquors, all made from rice, but the kinds vary by season and by ingredients. At the brewery, you can learn how traditional Korean liquors called Makgeolli, Yakju and Soju are made by fermentation and also have an opportunity to taste the three different liquors and Yiwhaju, a special kind of liquor that you can eat like yogurt.

Language guide

Exclusions

Shopping: a bottle of Samhae Soju (alcohol content: 45%)

Remarks

Yihwaju is a liquor you can eat like yogurt with a spoon. During the Joseon times, aristocratic women enjoyed Yihwaju. Because a woman drinking was not well regarded, they chose to consume alcohol in the same fashion as they would a light snack. You can experience Yihwaju making, but it requires for a special reservation. The Samhae Program includes learning about Korean traditional brewing and tasting of 4 liquors – Soju, Yakju, Makgeolli and Yihwaju. Only the Samhae Program is available on a regular basis. If you want to experience the Discovery Program and the Master Program, you need to make a request and a separate reservation with HummingB Korea for a minimum attendance of five persons.

  • Unique experience and taste all kinds of Samhae Soju!
    It was such a unique experience to taste all kinds of Samhae soju! The brewery master - Mr.Kim, he briefly lectured historical background of Samhae Soju and introducing about 10 different kinds of Soju. Samhae Soju started from Korea dynasty, now they have seasonal flavor such as Sanghwang mushroom, Korean local mandarin, grapefruits and other premium quality products. The taste of traditional Soju made by artisan, is a lot different from when we usually have known. Wouldn't able to find this kind of place on the guide book but it was good opportunity to know about Korean traditional alcohol.

  • Great introductory tasting course on traditional Korean spirits
    The variety of traditional Korean liquor we sampled and learned about was quite diverse. You can tell they have a deep appreciation and passion for what they make and do and they're especially eager to open your eyes to traditional, high-quality spirits and not the mass, factory-made drinks that come in the green bottles that are found everywhere. It would have been nice if we received a deeper introduction to the culture and history of Korean liquor instead of mostly explanations about each drink we sampled but given the short time, it's understandable. The location, within a beautiful hanok in Samcheongdong is fantastic although they mentioned they will be moving soon to a larger premise closer to Anguk Station soon. Great, friendly staff as well!

  • Experience the real Soju!
    I would definitely recommned this tour program to my friends. 
    Korea is really famous for its drinking and I've tried more than 7 types of SOJU in amazing SOJU lab. (haha) 
    It would be better if I could involve the process of making soju however it was still great!
