Quick Overview

Mizu Shochu is handcrafted and single distilled in the traditional Japanese way, and follows the honkaku style of production, meaning ‘genuine, authentic’ shochu. Limiting the distillation to a single pass preserves the naturally occurring flavors and aromas. With each additional pass – most common spirits are distilled at least two times – the more neutral and flavorless the spirit becomes. It is the time-honored Japanese practice to distill the moromi ‘mash’ only one time in order to capture and highlight the true essence of the raw ingredients. The result is a more natural taste that is complex, earthy and exquisite. It is a celebration and a tribute to the purity of nature and the flavors of the harvest.

Details

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.

TASTING NOTES: 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.

DRINKING SUGGESTIONS: 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.
