Koshu Yamabuki 20 YO 720ml

If you’re tired of Japanese whisky and are looking for something that’s aged and fortified please consider the Yamabuki Koshu from Akita. Kuramoto Sasaki san has fortified this to a not over the top 20% and uses 20 year old aged sake to produce a aromatic mellow and rounded tipple that goes down smoothly but won’t burn your throat. It’s not cheap but it is good.

Kojika Benitombo 720ml

­ Our latest shochu from Kagoshima. At a recent shochu tasting we tasted this and came to the conclusion that it was the best of our range to be served with hot water (40-60 hot water to shochu). Made with sweet potatoes.

Niida Honke Odayaka Junmai Ginjo Omachi 720ml

Omachi rice is a trickster. Hard to work with, often inconsistent. It reminds us of a 70’s Australian muscle car. Hard to get going but you’re always glad when it does and you will remember it long after you have finished driving the safe every day ordinary car that you do today. This is brewed by famous boutique organic shuzo Niida Honke from Tohoku region. Amazing taste. Low production.
