A beautiful traditional bottle of soba buckwheat shochu, a distilled alcohol native to Japan and popular in the southern region of Kyushu. Distilled from buckwheat, this shochu has an easily drinkable simple taste, unique aroma and hint of sweetness. Because of this it is especially popular with younger drinkers.

ITEM ID: #1446

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.

How To Use

Drink like whiskey.
• On the rocks.
• Mix with cold or hot water.
