BackgroundYobo Soju is the first ever grape-distilled, domestically produced Soju. It is crafted in New Yorks Finger Lakes region using locally sourced and sustainably farmed Catawba grapes, locally sourced yeast, and Finger Lakes water. After the Catawba grapes are harvested, they're used to create a wine. That liquid then runs through a 30-foot continuous still to make a single distillation grape base. Afterward, the base is cut with local water from the Finger Lakes to reach an alcohol percentage of 23 percent(46 Proof.) Unlike most traditional Sojus imported from Korea, Yobo Soju contains no sulfites, preservatives, additives, or sugars. James Kumm and Carolyn Kim developed a very deliberate process that does not use fillers or sweeteners. Yobo strives for a clean and high-quality. Yobo is best straight and ice-chilled. It also tastes great on the rocks with citrus. YOBO can also be mixed with any number of sodas and juices. It can also be a key ingredient for many cocktails and concoctions. Have fun with it!
