RICE SHOCHU

Rice Shochu is made from rice. It is often compared to the taste of sake, which is also made from rice, but sake is brewed and rice Shochu is distilled on top of that. Since it is made from rice, it goes well with Japanese appetisers, making it the perfect choice to go with a meal. 

BROWN SUGAR SHOCHU

Brown sugar made from sugar cane produced exclusively on the Amami Islands in Kagoshima Prefecture is the base ingredient in this Shochu. It is often mistaken for a sweet liquor, but the sugar in the raw material changes to ethyl alcohol during the distillation process, so the sugar content is in fact 0%. It is characterised by a mild sweetness that makes it easy to drink neat.
