Company Description

West 32 Soju is a New York-made soju that is all-natural, gluten-free, and produced in small batches. Our soju is the perfect low-ABV spirit to drink a shot of during a traditional drinking game, as a base in a simple weeknight mixed drink, or a component to elevate fine cocktails. West 32 Soju was created with a mission to share the virtues of this little-known beverage with cocktail drinkers across America, employing the artisanship of the craft movement while honoring the heritage and tradition of celebrating life with Soju.
