Our Story

OUR MISSION IS TO GLOBALIZE KOREAN ALCOHOL IN AN ACCESSIBLE AND INCLUSIVE WAY.

On a trip to Korea in 2017, I re-discovered makgeolli, a traditional Korean alcohol made with rice. I learned that makgeolli was Korea's oldest alcoholic beverage and that there were hundreds of different makgeolli breweries.

With just three ingredients, I was fascinated that makgeolli could taste so delicious and diverse, and was disappointed by the makgeolli options I found back home in the US. 

I visited a makgeolli bar that pureed different kinds of fruits into all-natural, home-made makgeolli, and that gave me the idea for our first brand, Mákku. 

At this time, I was working in the alcohol industry, and as a Korean American, I realized I wanted to launch a company focusing on Korean alcoholic beverages (AKA sool). 

Soku is our second product, a ready-to-drink cocktail with a soju base. Light, bubbly, and made only with all-natural ingredients, Soku ties together three things I love - soju, sparkling water, and real fruit. Whether on its own, with food, or shared with the ones you love, I hope you enjoy our sool as much as I do. 

Gunbae!
