Kooksoondang earns two stars

Kooksoondang, a traditional beverage maker, announced Tuesday that its canned makgeolli brand earned two stars at a tasting event in Belgium.

It's rice wine brand "Icing" was given two stars ― with three stars being the best quality ― at the "Superior Taste Award," where famous brewers and sommeliers sample beverages and grade them according to taste and quality.

This year, some 1,300 drinks competed and 150 received three stars, while some 400 including Icing gained two.

"Due to the low brand recognition, it scored low in the beginning. But its taste and fragrance were regarded highly," said a marketing manager of the firm.

Icing gained silver awards in the San Diego International Wine Competition and Consumer Wine Awards, held in the United States this year.
