Description
Andong Soju Museum (... seemorephotos

Andong soju has a rich history dating back hundreds of years. The history and culture of Andong soju in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province led to its designation of intangible treasure No.12. Residents continue working to preserve the history of soju in the area and to pass on its rich traditions to future generations. Andong soju is 45% proof alcohol. The pureness of the alcohol means that there are few negative side effects the following day.

Andong soju is manufactured right at the Andong Soju Museum, making the building's appearance seem a bit like a factory. Once inside, one can view the process of making Andong soju as well as other unique foods from the region. Queen Elizabeth's memorable birthday visit to the Andong area included a visit to the Andong Soju Museum. Visitors can view a special area that was used to celebrate the queen’s birthday; the room has been kept in the same condition as it was when the queen visited. If large groups make reservations in advance, group members may participate in the process of making Andong soju. Soju is sold at wholesale prices at the museum and is very popular with foreign tourists.
