This incredibly unique and fruity Shochu, very appropriately named after their Toji/Master Distiller – Mr. Nobuhisa Yasuda was first released in 2013. Using unique methods to make a 100% Imo Shochu using Sweet Potato ("Imo") as the main ingredient and Imo Koji - from Tsurunashigenji Imo (蔓無源氏), creates a more aromatic and fruity Shochu compared to the usual rice ("Kome") koji.

Sweet and rich aroma of fruits on the nose (some obvious lychee, hints of peach and perhaps some strawberries). Delicate, fruity, smooth and balanced while retaining the flavours of sweet potato on the palate with a warming finish, some dark chocolate bitterness and a very pleasant after taste. Chill the bottle and serve straight up or on the rocks. Pairs perfectly with a variety of food.

這款安田燒酎於2013由他們的酒廠大師 安田宣久 以獨家手法採用鹿兒島縣產的蔓蕪源氏原隻甜薯和蔓蕪源氏甜薯麴去發酵,創造出這款100%甜薯燒酎,有別於平時採用的米麴發酵,相對地酒香更芳醇,並帶有豐富果香。因此該燒酎以酒廠大師的名字命名: 安田。

芳醇的酒香,帶著豐富的甜果香,如荔枝,蜜桃,士多啤梨,當中以荔枝的香味較為明顯。喝下去,甘甜,果味,還有一些番薯味道,口感非常絲滑,容易入口,尾韻溫和帶有少許黑古力苦味。不管是純飲(直接雪凍更佳)還是加冰都可以,當然也不少得配合食物。
