160126北韓發明一種能“防止宿醉”的酒.jpg  

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is claiming a new milestone -- the invention of hangover-free alcohol. 
北韓宣佈了一項重大發明:一種能“防止宿醉”的酒。 
  
The state newspaper reported that Taedonggang Foodstuff Factory has introduced a ginseng liquor with 30% to 40% alcohol and, theoretically, no horrible morning after feeling. 
The drink features six-year-old, indigenous Kaesong organic "insam," a Korean name for ginseng. 
Developing the drink took years of research to figure out a way to minimize the bitter insam taste. 
The factory decided to use boiled rice instead of sugar which "promoted the sweet and savoury tastes of insam by weakening its bitter taste with the delicious flavor of the boiled and scorched glutinous rice," according to The Pynongyang Times. 
In theory, the hangover-fighting effects come from the use of scorched rice and from the ginseng's "medicinal effect." 
The nation has already poured accolades on the new drink, giving it a quality medal for "preserving national smack." 
The paper praised the product because it "exudes national flavor" and said that it has "already been registered as a national scientific and technological hit."
