KURO YOKAICHI is a sweet potato-based, single-distillation shochu. This process allows for great complexity and more influences from the source material. This is an engaging shochu with many nuances of aroma and flavor which conjure up memories and blends of flavors with the newspaper and a warm plate of English bacon and home fries with creme fraiche and chives.

Serving Recommendations

Neat or with a small ice cube in a juice glass. For a full-bodied taste and savory notes: Neat or Warm. Warm: Heat water to 175º F (80º C). Pour in a ratio of 4 parts shochu to 6 parts hot wate, or 5:5 for richer mix. Always pour hot water first, temper the cup, and add shochu lastaiming for an ideal mixed temperature of 100º F - 115º F (40º C - 45º C). Adding shochu to hot water will dissipate or damage the delicate flavor nuances, and cause bitterness.
