Refreshing ginger develops on the palate, with a tinge of sweetness that comes from the grain-derived ingredients. RIHEI GINGER is a crisp and dry shochu which is a one-of-a-kind shochu with 20% made from fresh ginger. One by one, ingredients are added for preparation: first rice koji, then barley, followed by ginger. The moromi mash undergoes a vacuum distillation process under reduced pressure, stored in a stainless steel tank and bottled at 38% ABV.

Ochiai Shuzojyo was founded in 1909 in Miyazaki.
