Oita Yomogi Shochu 720ml
Yomogi is Japanese mugwort, a botanical used to flavour drinks, mochi as well as for medicinal purposes.
Oita Yomogi shochu has a gentle herbal character on the palate and is super easy to drink. It is honkaku, authentic premium single distilled shochu. Although we enjoy this shochu straight up it is an essential winter drink with the addition of hot water. A great beginners shochu.
Tasting notes are based on an initial serving temperature of 20℃ served straight up.
Shochu is generally about 25% alcohol which is not overly strong for a spirit so it can be enjoyed quite readily. However in Japan the shochu otaku will water down their shochu to about the strength of wine / to taste and let it sit for a day or so. This method is called Maewari and can bring out the aromas and subtle flavours in the shochu.
