ABV: 25%

Size: 300 ml / 720 ml / 1800 ml

Made with a variety of sweet potato including “Genji-imo” variety, combined with special breed of rice from the SAMURAI ERA. From 7g of rice seeds, it’s bred for the first time after 154 years.

Slightly sweet, floral, crisp and delicately spicy palate with a deep umami aroma and a complexity that stays in the mouth for long. Yet it remains very gentle, easy to drink and can be enjoyed straight or on the rocks. We would also recommend Oyuwari (i.e. with hot water) which enhances the aroma and flavours. Pairs perfectly with fried fish and meat, spicy food but also with some sweet desserts.

它的原料是選用優質的「源氏」甜薯和「白玉米」米麴,以及黑米麴,通過常壓蒸餾,製造出這款充滿複雜的香氣,似花香,似番薯香氣,入口濃郁的鮮味,略帶甜味,尾韻悠長,帶著溫和的辛辣味。容易入口,可以直接飲用或在加冰享用。 還可以學鹿兒島傳統飲法 Oyuwari(加入一定比例的熱水),以增強香氣和風味。 配搭食物,可以與一些炸魚,肉,辛辣食物,或者一些日式料理例如味噌蛋黃,肉凍等。
