The result of a 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 clay jars.
Both elegant and subtle, 3S 2011 Sakura reveals a rich and deep profile developed during the period of maturation in sakura casks, the famous Japanese cherry tree from Kumamoto specially made for the distillery. On the palate, the flowery aromas of cherry blossom and gourmet vanilla are enhanced by the silky texture of this shōchū 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, the Ohishi distillery is now 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.
