One of the well-known local specialties in Southwest Vietnam is Go Den Rice Alcohol, named after the high-hill region of Go Den in Ben Luc district, Long An province, which is ideal for cultivating sticky rice. The specific alcohol first appeared during the French colonial era, playing a significant role in the development of Southern history and enhancing the nation’s traditional cultural values.
Due to its unique source of ingredients, such as sticky rice, round sticky rice (mu u sticky rice), violet glutinous rice, etc., Go Den rice alcohol has a delectable flavor. The whole grains used to make distilled alcohol also include a lot of advantageous group B minerals and vitamins, boosting nutritional value and guaranteeing consumers’ health. The Go Den rice alcohol’s brewing cellar maintains a consistent temperature of 27 to 29 degrees Celsius, enabling the “ferment” process to remove a maximum amount of aldehyde. When consumed, the alcohol will make the drinker feel warm, not cause a chill on the stomach or headache, and not make the drinker’s body “smelly.”
Famous for 05 Go Den alcoholic beverages that received 4-star OCOP rating from the appraisal council of the Long An Provincial People’s Committee, products of Go Den Production and Trading Joint Stock Company are currently on display at numerous fairs both inside and outside the province, including trade promotion exhibitions in Lao Cai, Vietnamese goods week in South Africa, the Can Tho exhibition, and others. The company’s goods are also sold, promoted, and disseminated in the Cambodian market concurrently.
The journey to nominate and promote the TOP-BEST best-selling OCOP-certified products in 63 provinces and cities of Vietnam is one of the projects implemented under the strategic alliance between the Vietnam Records Organization (VietKings), the USA Records Organization (USKings) and the World Records Institute (WorldMark), with the goal of propagating and promoting the record values of countries worldwide.
