This unparalleled drink is a local culinary delight of Halong. Made from a kind of glutinous rice that solely Halong has, Hoanh Bo soaked rice wine tastes sweet and sour. It requires experience and gentleness to produce this wine. Rice, without being ground, is cooked through, and incubated. Then, people soak fermented wine into a special leave of Hoang Bo forest, which helps to differentiate the wine from others.
The wine is very drinkable, light, and hardly causing someone to get drunk. If someone unfortunately gets drunk (usually falling into sleep 2-3 days) due to overdrinking, they will not suffer from headache or tiredness. After sobering up, they even feel better and refreshed.
Hoanh Bo soaked rice wine is a must-try drink in summer
