Hana Makgeolli is an artisanal Korean rice wine producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Our products celebrate heritage and the labor of love. By using only organic rice, nuruk, and traditional brewing methodologies we are able to achieve complex flavor profiles that show to breadth and depth of the entire sool category. Our brews strike an intricate balance between deep grain flavors and naturally occurring lactic with stronger alcohol by volume that is characteristic of jeongtongju that can only be found in Korea. The experience is like the warm embrace of home.
Alice and John set their sights on being the first domestic producer of traditionally made, artisanal makgeolli in 2017. Together, they are champions for Korean food and drink and plan to further establish and expand the Korean sool category here in the US.
