A strong "Cherry Blossom Island" distilled drink.

Made from sweet potato grown locally in the Kagoshima prefecture, the makers of this beverage have, with their masterful skills, managed to retain the unique flavour of its raw produce during distillation. Using black rice koji to develop an even deeper aroma, this strong, slightly sweet spirit is best enjoyed on the rocks or mixed with warm water.

ITEM ID: #13803

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.
