North Korea has struggled to endear itself to the Western world, thanks mainly to Kim Jong-un’s penchant for threatening the future of humanity as we know it with grandstanding h-bomb tests.
But Pyongyang has come up with one thing that might appeal in the UK: booze that doesn’t give you a hangover.
‘Koryo Liquor’ is made with scorched glutinous rice and also contains a ginseng called kaesong koryo insam. State media reports the drink “is highly appreciated by experts and lovers as it is suave and causes no hangover”. Hooray!
North Korean boffins have previously used the root to create Kumdang-2, a wonder drug that cures cancer, Aids and, er, drug addiction. It even increases sexual potency.
