Suntory suggests the Japanese spirit makkoli (or makgeolli or makkolli) for cherry blossom season. Makgeolli has become very popular in recent years in Japan. It has the same alcohol content as beer, but with a complex taste (some sweet, sour, and bitter). Often called rice wine, it is actually an unfiltered, fermented mixture of rice, barley and wheat, with a slight carbonation.
Seoul Makkoli was developed by Suntory and Lotte especially for the Japanese market.
