Minami-no-shimano-Kifujin (Lady of the Southern Islands) brown sugar shochu (300ml)
Brown sugar shochu
Raw materials Brown sugar, Rice-koji
Alcohol content 44% alc
This shochu is made by adjusting the first drip from the distilled mash to 44% ABV, giving it an elegant aroma and mellow sweetness derived from the brown sugar.
As it is bottled with minimum filtration, chilling it in the refrigerator and pouring it into a glass results in the oily components scattering like snow, which is a feast for the eyes. It tastes particular good when poured over vanilla ice cream or as a digestif together with dry fruits and pistachios.
It is named after the tree nymph butterfly (also called Noblewoman of the Southern Islands; Kikaijima Island’s protected butterfly species) that often flies by, lured by its smell.
Zero sugar and zero purine.
