The perfect mix of shimmering florality and buttery, toasty goodness, Naka Naka is the quintessential mugi shochu and is the perfect gateway into this deep category. It effortlessly straddles the complexity, umami, and richness of more rustic barley shochu and the gorgeous, clean, and refreshing side of more modern vacuum distilled expressions, resulting in a drink that has something in it for everyone. No self-respecting izakaya, shochu bar, or home liquor cabinet would be complete without Naka Naka on standby.
This is a favorite at our bar served sodawari (shochu and club soda); this style wins it fast fans daily, including those new to and experienced with shochu. You can also drink it oyuwari style mixed with hot water to enhance the cocoa, caramel, and honey-butter aromas.
