Description

This sweet potato shochu is made from Kagoshima-harvested ingredients and begins its life fermenting in decades-old clay pots buried up to their shoulders in the distillery floor. Anno imo sweet potatoes are added to the secondary fermentation, imparting equal parts sweet and spicy notes. After a single pass through a pot still, the spirit is rested for at least three years in unglazed clay pots, which adds to the drink’s depth of flavor. GSN’s Remarks: Quite different from the Jikuya Black, with a slight medicinal flavor, but also an unusual grape brandy character upon entry. Light in body, but rich with flavor, we prefer this one on it’s own, ideally as an aperitif. GSN Rating: A-
