About Hana Makgeolli Hwaju Brooklyn Rice Wine
Hana Makgeolli Hwaju Brooklyn Rice Wine is a naturally fermented, unfiltered rice wine made with organic rice and infused with hydrangea and chrysanthemum flowers.
Inspired by the traditional herbal and flower-infused sools that can only be found in Korea, the Hwaju is a sayangju (4-stage fermented alcohol) and made exclusively with organic medium-grain white rice, organic sweet white rice, nuruk (traditional Korean wild fermentation starter), and filtered New York water. The Hwaju is 12% ABV, dry, earthy, delicately floral, and bright with naturally occurring lactic acid and effervescence.
Best kept refrigerated or stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Shake gently to incorporate sediment and enjoy cold.
