Rice

In English, the word rice means the seed with shell, the rice plant, the shelled yet un-cooked rice, and the cooked rice. In the Chinese language, these four meanings have four different words. Raw rice refers to the shelled yet un-cooked rice. Rice is sometimes used as an adjunct ingredient in beer making.

In South Korea rice wine and especially soju or rice alcohol ( extremely cheap -- 3 bucks a litre ) is made, and are very popular.
