#72 Jirisan Herb Makgeolli (지리산 허브 막걸리)

 

Jirisan ‘Herb’ Makgeolli has a slightly sour aftertaste with the drink itself being quite thin with no carbonation.

Song Myong Seob generally comes in 900ml bottles as opposed to 750ml which is ideal as once you crack open that lid and taste that first sip it does kind of leave you wanting more.
