HWAYO(화요/火堯) is a traditional Korean liquor made from rice. Artfully crafted by the Kwangjuyo Corporation using only the finest ingredients, HWAYO is recognized for its sophistication and elegant simplicity.
When paired with traditional Korean food and pottery manufactured by Kwangjuyo, the beverage embodies the essence of Korean culture.
Kwangjuyo uses organic rice and pure water drawn from deep underground to make HWAYO a drink of superior quality and taste.
Combining traditional techniques with modern technology, Kwangjuyo ages HWAYO with a minimum of one year in a traditional Korean pottery while using acoustic vibrations to strengthen the aroma and flavor of the beverage.
The result comes to be a refined liquor, unlike anything else available today.
