West 32 Soju was created by two college friends, Dan Lee and Max Fine, who were inspired by memorable dinners and nights out on West 32nd Street in New York City�s Koreatown. They saw an opportunity after learning that imported soju can be made from cheap ethanol and highly processed sweeteners . After countless trials, they achieved a refined recipe for an all-natural, gluten free Soju, with their take on the traditional Korean spirit that�s is true to heritage, but with a modern American craft influence.
Dan and Max officially launched West 32 Soju in January 2017 as the first all-natural, gluten-free soju in the US. West 32 Soju is distilled and bottled in upstate New York in Clifton Park. It is produced from distilled corn and freshwater from the Catskills, and a touch of natural cane sugar. It is triple filtered and bottled at 19.99% ABV
