Now North Korean scientists seem to have scaled new heights of greatness with their latest invention - a special blend of liquor which doesn't give you a hangover.

According to the state-controlled newspaper Pyongyang Times, the drink also relies on ginseng root for its medicinal qualities and has been hailed as a "national scientific and technological hit."

The recipe replaces sugar with burnt rice, supposedly eliminating the liquor's bitter taste along with any risks of a hangover.

The drink "is suave and causes no hangovers", claimed the Pyongyang Times piece, which was entitled: "Liquor wins quality medal for preserving national smack."
