Coming to us from Kagoshima imo giant Nishi Shuzo, this shochu sports an earthy aroma and silky medium body owing to traditional clay-pot aging and fermentation with black koji. Try this on-the-rocks with gyoza, or oyuwari style for extra comfort on a cold night. Ask for the special maewari preparation of this luxurious shochu at the Umami Mart Bar for a decadent treat.
This shochu benefits greatly from a small amount of dilution to round out the aromas, so try a 6:4 (shochu to water) ratio in all preparations.
