foodography – booze from the dprk


Apologies first of all for the crappy image quality, but it was shot with an older cellphone. Not sure if any of you have seen alcohol made and bottled (more on this later) in this politically isolated east Asian country. A blueberry-based alcohol, almost wine like is what this is. Purchasing it and carrying it around for a while in a bag, something strange was noticed. The outer box started to feel damp. Oh darn, was the glass broken? A quick check. Nope. A while later, some obvious liquid was showing up in the same bag and the label was now damp. Perhaps from all the movement in the hand carry? Was it really broken?

Well yes. You see, the cap was not properly fitted and snug. Hearing from a local, it was explained that the “technology” in the bottling process was not quite up to expected standards, and this is a common occurrence. Lesson learned, but really? Also note to self, carry bottles always upright. Especially when they are made in the DPRK.
