History of Soju

What is Soju?
A type of Korean liquor and spirit, Soju is produced by two main methods. Originally, Soju was created by fermenting grains and distilling it with a single-distiller called “Soju-gori” As it gained in popularity, Soju transitioned to becoming commercially produced. Mainstream Soju is mass-produced in large batches at 95 degrees, and afterward, heavily diluted with water and other additives. In the past, people enjoyed genuine, handcrafted Soju. Nowadays, Soju produced by the latter method, also known as commercially produced “green bottles” dominate the scene. However, the original Soju is known as traditional Soju or distilled Soju.


The most popular theory is that the origin of Korean Soju can be traced back to the Yuan Dynasty during the 13th century Mongolia and Yuan occupation, however, it is not 100% accurate.


Originally in Korea, Soju was made with fire. The popularity ingrained “Soju” as a generic term for spirits amongst Korean people.

Tang’s Liquor

Tang’s Liquor began in Flushing, New York. Back then we were the first established liquor-wholesaler in the United States to offer popular Korean spirits. Today, we are privileged to loyally connect with millions of American customers who have been influenced by our primary efforts of spreading Korean liquor and Korean culture in the heart of America’s Northeastern region.

We have always believed in promoting Korean Soju, Makgeolli, and Cheongju to the American public, and our efforts particularly played a big role in popularizing Soju. 

Today, Soju is offered by Korean restaurants as well as restaurants and bars of non-Korean culture. Standardized as the smoothest liquor among millennials, Soju boasts affordability and palatability, especially when enjoyed with a variety of Korean food. Makgeolli is a Korean wine made with fermented rice that has been given the characteristics of being rich, aromatic, and a drink that enhances your appetite. Together, Soju and Makgeolli proudly represent the finest Korean grains that grow within Korea’s diverse geography and natural environment. Without a doubt, these two beverages founded in the far east are now enjoyed by people worldwide who desire that special aroma and taste of Korea.
