Mizu Green Tea Shochu
Hand crafted in the traditional way, the shochu is single distilled from a mash of local harvests; two-rowed barley, black koji rice, and freshly picked, then steamed, Ureshino green tea leaves. At 70 proof it is more concentrated like shochus of old to enhance the aroma, complexities, body and finish. Rich, bold, fragrant and delicious.
Rich and fragrant with notes of matcha, passion fruit, nori (dried seaweed) and cacao. Buttery texture with a long, delicious, lingering finish. Green tea ice cream, chocolate, banana and hints of white peach.
To savor the beautiful flavors of this Green Tea shochu, try the traditional methods of shochu enjoyment; neat in a small snifter; ‘mizuwari’ (with a splash of cold water); ‘oyuwari’ (with hot water), first added to a ceramic cup, followed by the shochu in a 1:1 ratio; or ‘sodawari’ (with soda water) in a highball glass over ice.
