Ingredient Quality UP
Soju (Chamisul)
We have created clean soju that’s in a league of its own by using fermented and distilled alcohol from rice, barley, sweet potato,
tapioca, and sugar cane and by adding only plant-derived additives, including crystalline fructose from Finland and thaumatin.

Chamisul only contains clean plant-derived additives, including plant-derived sweetener crystalline fructose from Finland, often
dubbed “healthy sugar” and used as a substitute for sugar in Europe, and thaumatin, a protein sweetener extracted from black seeds of the katemfe fruit from Western Africa.

Most ingredients for the beer made by HITEJINRO are supplied from countries with advanced beer making techniques
and countries with clean natural environments.

Main countries of origin
  • Malt : Australia, Canada, Spain, etc.
  • Hops : U.S., Germany, New Zealand, the UK, etc.

  • Q-UP System
    This is out liquor quality control system for providing
    consumers with top quality products by maintaining the
    distribution of the best quality liquor at a top level.
  • Fresh 365 Campaign
    A “fresh” campaign for replacing products whose
    “quality maintenance periods” have expired with new
    products. This was done for the first time in the
    industry to ensure that we provide consumers with
    fresh liquor 365 days a year.
  • FTK System : Fresh Taste Keeping System
    A tailored fermentation system that applies multivariate
    analysis used in statistics to manufacturing processes to
    create clean and rich flavors.
Q-UP Process
  • Chamisul
    “Go natural” (activated bamboo charcoal) purification Activated bamboo charcoal makes your morning
    more refreshing Its purification capacity is 7 times
    stronger than normal bamboo charcoal. By using
    activated bamboo charcoal, which effectively
    removes the elements that can cause hangovers,
    we created Chamisul’s uniquely clean flavors.
  • hite
    “Extra Cold” technique
    With this technique, an upgraded version of hite’s
    Ice Point Foltration System, we keep the whole
    process from ripening to production at a
    temperature range just below freezing, specifically
    from -3℃ to -2℃. In this way, we capture the
    characteristics of clean pale lager that goes down
    Air Blocking System By minimizing air contract during the manufacturing process, we deliver the refreshing qualities of beer to your home.
  • Max
    Post-ripening method Since we use a post-ripening method in the
    fermentation process, Max offers clean, consistent,
    well-balanced tastes, and the deep and rich flavors
    of 100% barley beer.
  • Dry d
    Collaboration with Danbrew Alectia Under a new product development consulting
    agreement since 2005 with Danbrew Alectia from
    Denmark, one of the world’s best beer research
    institutes,, we designed 105-step development and
    quality processes, came up with 67 types of sensory
    tests, and conducted a consumer survey for two
    years and two months. After a five-year
    development period, which amounts to a satellite
    development project, and an unprecedented level
    of financial investment, we have produced Dry d.
