Expert shochu craftsmanship. A rare, luxurious spirit. 

Usually in buckwheat shochu, rice koji is used with the buckwheat because buckwheat seeds, with their hard exterior, are difficult to ferment. However, no challenge is too much for Takari. This shochu is made with 100% buckwheat ingredients, allowing you to enjoy the pure, sweet flavour of buckwheat. The single distillation maintains the uniquely aromatic quality of this spirit. 

  • Type: Buckwheat-based Shochu
  • Flavour: Light and floral, with a hint of mint
  • Fragrance: Fresh with a whiff of smoke
  • Drinking Temperature: Best enjoyed chilled
  • Food Pairing: Just like soba noodles, this soba spirit is perfect with fried fish and meats. 

ITEM ID: #13430

Background

Shochu is another indigenous Japanese alcoholic drink alongside sake and umeshu. Unlike sake it is distilled, not brewed, with the alcohol level usually between 25-45%. Its popularity is highest in southern Japan where the weather is considerably warmer. Sake calls for cool temperatures, but Shochu can be distilled in these warmer climes. Shochu is made from one of several raw materials including sweet potato, rice, buckwheat and barley; each of which gives a very distinct flavour and aroma much like the varying tastes of scotch whiskey.
