Wine surpasses spirits in Korea's imported liquor market Updated: 2015-08-05 17:33:47 KST

Korea is importing more wine than liquor for the first time ever.
The Korea International Trade Association says wine imports rose five.five-percent from the year before to 94.four million U.S. dollars in the first half of the year.
Imports of the hard stuff like whiskey, vodka and gin, came in at million dollars.
Spirits once took up two-thirds of booze imports, but wine now has the highest share at nearly 25 percent. Liquor fell to just over 24 percent.
Wine imports have jumped with more Koreans interested in health and light drinking.
Demand also increased for a wider variety of wine from vineyards in Chile, the United States and Australia.
