Travellers discover traditional Korean alcohol with The Sool Company
Originally from Brisbane, Julia Mellor has made a name for herself in Seoul as an expert of traditional Korean alcohol through her business The Sool Company (sool meaning alcohol in Korean).
Together with her partner Daniel McLaughlin, Mellor is now offering various tours for visitors travelling to Seoul, particularly for the upcoming Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
Among the tours are Makgeolli (traditional rice wine) brewing classes, a hands on experience where visitors can learn about brewing their own Makgeolli, and the Insadong Taster, which takes guests on a three-hour traditional Korean alcohol tasting spree visiting three Makgeolli bars.
The Master Brewers tour offers a chance to taste some of the finest Korean alcohol available on the market or experience the full spectrum of Korean traditional alcohol in one tasting and dining journey, tasting makgeolli, takju, cheongju and soju paired with an exquisite array of local delicacies.
