100% Mizunara-Aged Barley Shochu from Honkaku, Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan.

ABOUT: As a former engineer, Tadashi Yanagita brings a sense of precision and elegance to his family’s storied shochu distillery. They specialize in barley shochu in all its variations and subtleties, from the light clean and buttery style they originated to large flavored brews bursting with roasty and nutty flavors, to delicate high proof barley shochu whose aging in Mizunara oak gives it a texture and aroma to rival the finest whiskies.

DISTILLATION/AGING: Yanagita Distillery’s signature 100% barley shochu is aged for 1-3 years in famed Japanese Mizunara oak.

TASTING NOTES: The aging imparts a beautiful golden color and a silkiness to the final product that is reminiscent of fine Japanese whiskey but has the inherent koji richness and umami distinctive to shochu.

FOOD PAIRING: This Shochu will pair well with both Western & Eastern foods, especially richer dishes with Umami flavors.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Adjust the alcohol content according to both the scene and pairing dishes. Mix shochu with soda for a light and fizzy treat before the meal. Remember to dilute the alcohol content to 10-15% to improve pairing during the meal. Lastly, enjoy shochu either neat or on the rocks after the meal.
