Welcome to The Sool Company!

If you're here it means you are curious about the wonderful world of Korean alcohol, and you have come to the right place.   The Sool Company was founded by Julia Mellor, the first non-Korean specialist in the field of Korean booze and a self-confessed devotee to the makgeolli cause. 

Julia has spent the last 10 years studying and researching Korean alcohol, from fermentation principles to the ins-and-outs of owning a brewery.  She is happiest in the corners of traditional breweries with local artisans, discussing the finer points of rice and yeast over a cold bowl of makgeolli.  


It has therefore become her life-long passion to pass on the knowledge and hidden secrets of this amazing part of Korean culture, and The Sool Company is the manifestation of that passion.  We strive to inspire, amaze and evoke curiosity about this rich tradition and emerging global trend. 

In addition to the wealth of articles and content related to 'Sool' (Korean alcohol), the Sool Company also offers services for brewing education, promotions and consulting.  Whatever your needs are for Korean alcohol, The Sool Company has you covered!
