SEASONAL SERIES, SUMMER INSPIRED

We take great pride in celebrating local, seasonal harvests and flavors. As shochu can be distilled from a wide variety of crops, we break convention in offering rare shochus distilled from uncommon ingredients. These shochus are seasonally inspired, and the first of the four-seasons series is ‘Lemongrass’. Grown throughout the hot summer months, the lemongrass offers a refreshing twist on traditional rice shochu. The harvest of both the lemongrass and the rice occur simultaneously just before the fall, and we distill only one batch while the lemongrass is still fresh.


Coming soon in early spring of 2018 will be our new addition to the series, a spring inspired Mizu Shochu.
