Soju is a beverage distilled from a number of ingredients, among them rice, barley and even sweet potatoes. It is made in South Korea, where it is the national beverage; alcohol may not exceed 35%. It is traditionally served neat over ice.

Many examples tend to have a clear appearance with mild flavors such as nougat, marshmallow or melon. Soju is comparable to a very mild vodka.
