Our Journey

Thank you for coming along with us on our journey! Please stay for the ride 😃

I founded this company in 2017 with the mission to globalize Korean alcohol in an accessible and innovative manner.

While working in the alcohol industry, I saw that Asian beverages were underrepresented in the market, and felt that Asian Americans were ignored as a consumer segment. In the US, we account for 7% of the population, and have a disproportionate amount of purchasing power, which is growing at a rate much faster than the general population.

It’s only a matter of time that we will influence the beverage industry in the way that we should, and I wanted a seat at the table. As a Korean American, I decided to launch a company that would focus on what I know and love - Korean alcoholic beverages (AKA sool).

Mákku is our interpretation of traditional makkuli, which is Korea’s oldest alcoholic beverage.

On a trip to Korea, I visited a makkuli bar that pureed different kinds of fruits into their home-made makkuli. That gave me the idea to launch different Mákku flavors, loaded with real fruit.

Soku is our spin on a Ready to Drink Cocktail. Light and bubbly, while made only with all-natural ingredients, Soku ties together all the things I love - soju, sparkling water, and real fruit.

I hope you enjoy our sool as much as I do.

Gunbae!
