Handcrafted in the traditional way, this classic shochu is single distilled from tasty Japanese two-rowed barley, black koji rice, and the pure, famous waters of Black Hair Mountain (Kurokami-yama). At 70 proof it is more concentrated, like shochus of old, to enhance the subtle complexities, body and finish.
Delicate, earthy, lively, delicious. Floral, sake-like aroma with notes of banana bread and fresh grains. Buttery texture. Drinks like a young whisky with hints of ripe melon and vanilla custard.
Enjoyed best on the rocks with a single large ice (you can try with a slice of cucumber). Or enjoy as a highball, topped with soda water and garnished cucumber slices. We also suggest mixing with fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and a splash of soda, or mixing with iced green teas.
