This 100% barley shochu is made using the softest strike water in Kagoshima Prefecture. The first fermentation is white barley koji with steamed barley and 8% roasted barley added to the mash bill in the main fermentation. All barley used is heirloom 2-row Schooner barley. The raw distillate is aged a minimum of 5 years before dilution and bottling at 25% alcohol. The rich, roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes come through beautifully.
