That North Korean government is an evil, oppressive regime headed by one of the 21st century’s biggest villains.
What’s that, they invented hangover free booze? All hail North Korea, they may have changed Phuza Thursdays forever.
Yes, according to state propaganda machine the Pyongyang Times scientists have invented a real game changer. Here’s the BBC:
The newspaper article, titled, “Liquor wins quality medal for preserving national smack”, says the Taedonggang Foodstuff Factory has been working for years on the elixir.
The drink derives from Kaesong Koryo insam – a natural herb thought to have medicinal properties. According to the Pyongyang Times, replacing sugar with the scorched, glutinous rice removed the bitterness from the insam and, crucially, the hangover.
“Koryo Liquor, which is made of six-year-old Kaesong Koryo insam, known as being highest in medicinal effect, and the scorched rice, is highly appreciated by experts and lovers as it is suave and causes no hangover,” the article reads.
The liquor “has already been registered as a national scientific and technological hit”, it adds.
Oh I see, they’re talking absolute shite again – this is the same government that said medical products containing extracts from the insam plant could cure Mers, Sars and even Aids.
Here’s Andray Abrahamian, a businessman who travels regularly to North Korea and has sampled the magical elixir:
[He said] that insam liquors were “OK” but he is “not that keen on it as a tasty treat”.
“There are some high quality liquors made in North Korea, though in my experience there is no such thing as hangover-free booze anywhere in the world,” he said.
Back to drawing all the curtains on Sunday and regretting poor life decisions then. Thanks for nothing North Korea.
