Kiccho Hozan 750ml


Size: 750 ml

Type of Shochu: Otsu Rui

Main Ingredient: Sweet Potato (IMO)

Alcohol by Volume: 25% (50pf)

Distillery Location: Kagoshima Prefecture

Food Pairings: Grilled Meat, Gyoza

Tasting Notes: Made with premium quality sweet potatoes and black koji, and best enjoyed diluted with hot water (oyuwari), as the steam from the hot water will bring the sweet aroma into play. Full bodied and crisp, this is a shochu that will almost certainly tempt the palate of any fine shochu connoisseur.

Distillery: Nishi (founded: 1845)

Believing that good shochu, like a good harvest, is nothing less than a gift from the earth, Nishi Shuzo only uses potatoes and rice grown by local farmers. Additionally the brewery itself is surrounded by mountains, and thus they are blessed with good water.
