Ikekame Shuzo is relatively new to shochu-making in comparison to their sake-making history of nearly 150 years. President Kamachi says, β€œWe aim to create shochu that expresses the characteristics of the ingredients and the local climate” and for this bottle, Fukuoka barley is used. The result is a shochu with a buttery texture and notes of toast and chocolate with a cinnamony, burnt sugar tail.
