Bathtub gin, Pyongyang-style

They certainly know how to have a good time:

"A Pyongyang city contest of crude liquor and sweet drinks prepared with rice and malt was held on Tuesday.

The contest brought together more than 20 organizations and factories selected from various catering units and housewives in Pyongyang.

They presented more than 100 varieties of drinks they have prepared in the course of finding out the original methods of making crude liquor and sweet drinks with rice and malt and putting their processing on a scientific basis.

Crude liquor made with glutinous rice, polished rice, corn and wheat, etc... drew attention of experts and visitors as they retained fresh relish while preserving sour taste and hazy color with moderate alcoholic content. Highly appreciated there was the experience gained by restaurants and housewives in Pyongyang in preparing sweet drinks with scorched rice at the bottom of pot, washings of rice or noodle and other by-products of grains".

Think I'll stick to vintage Bordeaux, especially if somone else is paying.
