Bohae Bokbunjajoo Black Raspberry NV

Member Review by Tamar1973:

According Korean tradition Bokbunja gets its name thanks to a monk who found his chamber pot turned over after eating the wild raspberries. Bok(覆) means turning over, Bun(盆) means chamber pot and Ja(子) means man.Bokbunjajoo is the wine made from the bokbunja berry. The wine produced by these berries is a very deep red with an average of 15-19% alcohol There are two main producers of bokbunja in Korea that I am acquainted with. Bohae, which is based in Jansung, Cholla Province, South Korea, which is at the southwest end of the peninsula. Bohae's award winning read more...Bokbunjajoo was the featured liqueur at the APEC 2005's official dinner party and the 2006 Gwangju Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates. Bokbunjajoo is perfectly suited for mixing in cocktails as well as "on the rocks".

I have drank it many times. I'm not Korean but found it at my local store owned by Koreans. It's a sweet wine with a smooth finish. It goes for about eight to nine dollars but is a quarter of a wine bottle. The alcohol content is high per volume. I don't know much about the health benefits. I figure it's fermented raspberries so I'm guessing that it is good for you. Bottom line is that as a wine drinker I enjoy it and would recommend it. Also keep in mind that it is served chilled so it makes a great summer drink.
