Let's be real: if you get your news from The Pyongyang Times, you're probably not reading Thrillist. One writes predominantly about food and drink; the other publishes propaganda from a country without sufficient food and drink for most of its population. You can figure which is which.
In any case, the DPRK-run Pyongyang Times reports this week North Korean scientists have invented a liquor that is "highly appreciated by experts and lovers as it is suave and causes no hangover." That's a pretty sick translation on its own, but the miracle-booze article has garnered enough interest to cripple the paper's website. That's what happens when your newspaper is hosted on 28K dial-up and all your country's resources go to making a dictator grow more gluttonous by the day.
According to the report, the secret behind the "no hangover" booze, called Koryo, is twofold: the special elixir is distilled from six-year-old ginseng and "scorched rice" by Taedonggang Foodstuff Factory. The rice replaces sugars you'd normally find in alcohol, thus preventing a bitter flavor and a hangover. Additionally, the Hermit Kingdom's government touts the Taedongang (ha ha, donggang) product for it medicinal properties, as the country has previously claimed ginseng extracts could cure MERS, SARS, and AIDS. Too bad they can't cure despotism.
