North Korea claims to have invented "hangover-free alcohol"

When North Korea finally reaches for 'the button' on their recently tested nuclear device, it'll come as scant reassurance that Kim Jong-Un won't have tipped the world toward a fiery end because of a particularly nasty hangover.

State-run newspaper and long-standing propaganda-trumpet Pyongyang Times has declared that the glorious nation has a new reason to celebrate after the creation of hangover-free alcohol. 

Described as a "suave" liquor (it's never seen in public without a double cuff shirt and always pays when taking out a lady), the beverage uses six-year-old plant extract ginseng and scorched glutinous rice in favour of sugar.

The product of Taedonggang Foodstuff Factory, the Kyro Liquor claims to have a 'medicinal effect' which avoids a hangover: we can only assume it hydrates its drinker, rather than acting as a diuretic and resulting in ruinous headaches.

Having recently won acclaim at the 'Food Sector Festival' (those guys now how to party), the Kyro Liquor has been registered as a "national scientific and technological hit".

We've contacted the Taedonggang Foodstuff Factory for a sample. We're not holding out hope for a response.
