Chamisul ORIGINAL

Chamisul is a brand of soju by HiteJinro.[1] It is the most popular brand of liquor in the world.[2][3][4][5][6][7] Chamisul Fresh is 17% ABV, and Chamisul ORIGINAL is 20.1% ABV. The name "Chamisul," meaning "dew" in Korean, was created by Son Hye-won, the representative of Cross Point to represent the dew on the bottles of cold soju. It is also the Korean-reading of the hanja Jin-ro (眞露), the name of the company.[8] The name of the first product was "Chamjinisulro." After the introduction of Chamisul Fresh on August 18, 2006, the brand was called both "Chamjinisulro" and "Chamisul." In December 2009, it was decided that "Chamisul" would be the sole name.
