Wine surpasses spirits in Korea’s imported liquor market
Korea is importing more wine than liquor for the first time ever. The Korea International Trade Association says wine imports rose five per cent from the year before to 94 four million U.S. dollars in the first half of the year. Imports of the hard stuff like whiskey, vodka and gin, came in at 91.seven million dollars. Spirits once took up two-thirds of booze imports, but wine now has the highest share at nearly 25 per cent. Liquor fell to just over 24 per cent.
