Tomi no Hozan 750ml


Size: 750 ml

Type of Shochu: Otsu Rui

Main Ingredient: Sweet Potato (IMO)

Alcohol: 25

Distillery Location: Kagoshima Prefecture

Tasting Notes: Using low-temperature fermentation, yellow koji (usually used in sake rather than shochu) and carefully selected sweet potatoes, Tomi no Hozan displays a sweet and citrusy aroma and light, enjoyable flavor.

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.
