Distiller: Yoigokochi Saké
Shochu is a typical Japanese drink, whose name derives from the word shaojiu, meaning burnt liquid.
The raw materials to produce this distillate can vary, from chestnuts to sweet potatoes, from barley to buckwheat, while distillation always takes place in discontinuous copper or steel still.
The shochu Mutemaka Davada Hiburi of Yoigokochi Sake Importers is based on chestnuts that give it a sweet taste and a marked aromaticity. Balanced and soft on the palate.
