Top 10 weird wine ingredients

And finally… Korean faeces wine

feces wineJapanese website RocketNews24 claimed to have tracked down a Korean wine, known as Ttongsul, which is made primarily using human or animal faeces. The website claims Ttongsul is made using a Korean distilled grain alcohol, called soju, so technically it is not a wine.

The faeces are soaked in the soju with medicinal herbs for three to four months until it ferments. It is thought Ttongsul can help broken bones to heal and can cure illness – personally this scribe will stick with a cast and some paracetamol.

RocketNews24 gave the drink to a Japanese girl band to taste, one of whom said: “This is really good, and easy to drink. I think this could be a hit with girls.”

Err, no thanks, some people are happy drinking crap wine, but this is going too far.
