Moon Soju's Story

A little bit about our history, and why we stand out in the soju and spirits world!

Soju is more than just a drink, it’s a way of life. It’s a conversation-starter, an icebreaker, and a way to soften the tension while bonding with those around us. With a cleaner, crisper taste, our soju puts you in control to spice it up! With the increasing popularity of soju worldwide, it was only a matter of time before its influence reached Canadian shores. We highlight the emergence of Canadian-made soju, focusing specifically on the innovative distillery Moon Soju. This new player in the Canadian spirits scene takes inspiration from the rich history of Korean soju while infusing it with a distinct Canadian twist.

Moon Soju's founders set out in 2017 to bring you clean, low-cal Soju of the highest quality, made using organic corn and distilled five times for unprecedented smoothness. Co-founder Alex Safir describes this Toronto-distilled spirit as being defined by its simple ingredients and distillation process, making it a unique choice among existing brands. Alex believes that the core of the business revolves around family and growth, with Moon Soju being their connector. Alex has generational experience working with alcohol, spirits and distilling after following in the footsteps of his father, the creator of Canadian Vodka. Alex would help with operations in hopes that he could help his parents retire early. The more involved he became in the family business, the more he started to enjoy it. Recognizing a deep appreciation for Korean cuisine and culture, as well as the Korean traditions of family and togetherness, Alex decided to try his hand at his own, original, creation. Thus, Moon Soju was born.

Made with a non-GMO corn base and distilled six times, Moon Soju has a distinct taste and texture that sets it apart from other spirits. With its gluten-free recipe, Moon Soju is perfect for those with dietary restrictions or anyone who wants a cleaner, purer drinking experience. One of the standout features of Moon Soju is its smoothness. The distillation process gives this spirit a soft taste and clean burn that's hard to resist. And with a goal of pairing well with a wide range of dishes without overpowering the flavors, Moon Soju is a versatile choice for any occasion.

Soju, with its rich history and cultural significance, has made a remarkable journey from Korea to Canadian distilleries. Moon Soju represents the fusion of Korean traditions and Canadian craftsmanship, offering a distinct taste that resonates with those seeking a captivating drinking experience. Whether you are already a soju enthusiast or curious to explore new flavors, raise a glass of Moon Soju and celebrate the fascinating history of this beloved spirit, now crafted right here in Canada. Moon Soju is distilled in Toronto and with it comes delicate aromas of melons and tapioca.
