Besides alcohol, there are a number of soft drinks available in shops and gift shops throughout the country. Whilst famous western drinks such as Sprite and Fanta can be found, Note however that “Coca Cola” is seldom there. Alternatively, there are “local brand” North Korean soft drinks, such as “Ryongjin Cola” although given its taste, we wouldn’t recommend this. You are free to take the local drinks you buy in North Korea (alcoholic or non alcoholic) and take them home as gifts, but you may not sell them commerically.
Do not drink tap water in North Korea! As with all developing and underdeveloped countries, there are problems with sanitation. Bottled water is available for purchase at the hotel, or you can bring some in from China.
