Cheon Bi Hyang

Cheon Bi Hyang

Cheon Bi Hyang is a yakju and goes through a 5-step fermentation process that takes 100 days. It is aged for 3 months before bottling and the whole production process takes 6 months which is a fairly long time for typical Korean alcohol. It is made with sticky rice (chapssal) and nuruk and is 16% alcohol.

This is produced by one of our favorite breweries in Korea, Choun Sool (좋은술). Originally, founded by Seok Jun Lee (이석준) this brewery is a family affair and a new generation is taking the reins. This brewery is based out of Pyeongtaek-Si just south of Seoul. It produces 5 different types of traditional alcohol including takju and soju all made with local Pyeongtaek rice.
