Origin of Dalholju (Traditional Korean rice wine)
‘Dalhol’ was the name of Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do in the era of the ancient kingdom of Goguryeo.
‘Dal’ had the meaning of a ‘mountain’ while ‘Hol’ meant either a ‘castle’ or a ‘village’ back then.
In other words, ‘Dalhol’ can be translated into a mountainous village or a ‘highland village.’
Dalholju is produced by Dalhol Brewery, a two-generation family agricultural corporation that has brewed Makgeolli for more than 50 years.
The premium traditional Korean rice wine is brewed with uncontaminated deep ocean water extracted from a depth of 605m in Goseong’s clean deep sea and Goseong rice exposed to fresh sea breeze and is filtered twice to give it a cleaner taste and flavor.
