This is how Jinju is made.
Jinju, which is a traditional wine made through strict and stringent process control, goes through a combination of diastatic activities and fermentation by saccharizing local white rice and glutinous rice into yeast and baekguk
The 21-year-old doraji (Jangsaeng doraji) is added in the 2nd fermentation process.
70–75% of glutinous rice and rice is milled to remove the fat and protein contained in the exterior of brown rice. Fat and protein work against the color and flavor of alcohol and cause fusel oil (a substance causing headache).Ion exchange resin is used as brewing water while brewing, fermentation, and ripening are perfected in an automatic controller in a three-layer tank. The liquor essence then goes through two-step filtering and sterilizing process before it is put in a bottle
Jinju is a fine traditional wine made with high-quality ingredient and in compliance with thorough principles in state-of-the-art facilities mounted with the latest technologies.
