Tasting Notes: With most Awamori, Shimauta has a flavorful, rich, herbal taste. It has a warm mouth feel that has a great richness to it. The herbal flavor is not overpowering, but also does not hide. It has the slightest hint of sweetness, that seems to not reach you tongue but has herbal finishes that lingers into a buttery end.
Distillery: Higa Shuzo (founded: 1883)Awamori is an alcoholic beverage indigenous to and unique to Okinawa, Japan. It is made from long grain indica rice, and is not a direct product of brewing (like Sake) but of distillation (like Shochu). The most popular way to drink awamori is with water and ice. Awamori can also be drunk straight, on the rocks, and in cocktails.
