Shizuoka Shochu Tasting 5-1: Hana No Mai Brewery-Achanotsubone
Over recent years Hana No Mai Brewery has acquired a welcome expertise in creating not only top-class sake and umeshu, but also some great shochu!
“Achanotsubone” (roughly translated as “Dear Chinese friend’s secret room”!) is a kome (rice) shochu distilled from junmai sake, an extravagant choice.
At a standard 25 degress alcohol, it is surprisingly tasty.
Aroma: light fruit
Another shochu that ladies will not be able to resist!
Make the perfect “high ball” with ice and Schweppes Tonic Water!
