This is a Shochu Gumi selection! It was featured in June 2021 .
I dare you to open this bottle and not finish it all in one night! What I love about awamori is its unique aroma, thanks to the liberal use of black koji – this bottle exemplifies this greatly with notes of Swiss Miss hot chocolate, rice candy, and butterscotch; yet the palate remains crisp. Mizuho has been making awamori since 1848, “Making koji by hand, brewing and distilling it carefully, and aging it slowly,” said Mr. Akira Nakazato of the company. Drink this on the rocks with many friends, around Korean BBQ or the next backyard smokeout on a hot summer night.
