About Hana Makgeolli Takju Brooklyn Rice Wine
Hana Makgeolli Takju Brooklyn Rice Wine is coarsely filtered, dry, and undiluted with an alcohol by volume of 16%. This wine undergoes low temp pasteurization to maintain the full spectrum of flavors from a wild fermented brew, starting with the extremely floral almost melon-like character of fermented rice, followed by the brightness of our wild yeast that is perfectly balanced with the creaminess of the naturally occurring lactic acid and rice sediment.
Best served cold. Shake gently before serving.
The Takju is a samyangju (3-stage fermented alcohol) made exclusively with organic medium-grain white rice, organic sweet (glutinous) white rice, nuruk (traditional Korean wild fermentation starter), and filtered New York water. Fermented to dryness over 4 weeks and bottle conditioned to achieve fine bubbles that elevate the intricate flavors of the wine.
