Born from the collaboration between the 3S Super Shochu Spirits brand and the Ohishi distillery, this premium shōchū is unique in that it was aged in wooden casks instead of kame the traditional earthenware jars.
Like a whiskey, 3S 2009 Mizunara reveals a complex and refined profile acquired during the long maturation in Mizunara casks, the rare and precious Japanese oak. When tasted, aromas of sandalwood, agarwood, cocoa and dark chocolate form the main framework of the aromatic palette of this shochu produced from premium rice grown locally in the distillery's own rice fields.
Founded in 1872 in the Kumamoto region on the island of Kyushu, Ohishi distillery is today run by Kazunori Ohishi, the sixth generation. Heir to a long history of expertise, he now benefits from the boldness of his father who was the first Japanese in the early seventies to age his shōchū in wooden barrels, the vast majority of which are brandy, sherry, and more rarely mizunara and Japanese cherry barrels the famous sakura.
Product limited to 2 bottles per order.
