Iichiko Silhouette is an aromatic and easily drinkable shochu. Its nose is lemony with hints of other fruits, flowers, mint, thyme, and almond. At only 25% ABV (“alcohol by volume”), it’s much lighter than common Western spirits like vodka or gin, giving it a softer impact on the palate. It is slightly sweet with a lean and bright finish. Iichiko Silhouette is moderately complex and incredibly smooth, and can be enjoyed straight or on the rocks; served with water (both cold and hot); or as the base for lower alcohol cocktails.
