North Korea is claiming to have invented an alcoholic beverage that won’t give you a hangover, according to state-run media.

According the Pyongyang Times, a state-controlled newspaper in North Korea, “Koryo Liquor” is made from “indigenous Kaesong Koryo insam (ginseng) and glutinous rice cultivated by an organic farming method in the country.”

The report claims that that the secret lies in “the scorched rice,” and that Koryo Liquor “is highly appreciated by experts and lovers as it is suave and causes no hangover.”

According the Pyongyang Times, “The product exudes national flavour also in the shape of bottle and packaging.”

North Korean state media often report bizarre claims made by the nation’s totalitarian government. Last year, they claimed that the country had discovered a cure for Ebola, SARS and AIDS, also using ginseng.
