Feel the wind of ancient Amami
As we enter June, we can feel the footsteps of summer, albeit little by little.
We offer aged shochu made in the tropical island of Amami , which is reminiscent of summer even though it's called ``beautiful sake from ancient times.''
All three brands are brown sugar shochu that are only allowed to be produced in the Amami Islands, and you can enjoy the differences in taste due to aging.
・“ 2003 Select” (Oki Sake Brewery / Kagoshima Prefecture)
・“ 2009 Yayoi” (Yayoi Shochu Brewery / Kagoshima Prefecture)
・“ 2010 Kana” (Nishidaira Sake Brewery / Kagoshima Prefecture)
“2010 Kana” is not only a very valuable aged sake, but also a talented wine that won the gold medal in the Japanese sake distilled spirits category at the “Feminalise World Wine Competition 2022” held in France.
With an alcohol content of 35 to 41 %, this brand is one of the highest among the "good old sakes", but despite its alcohol content, you can enjoy the mellowness and rich aroma of brandy or whisky.
We have received comments of surprise and satisfaction from customers who have actually purchased the product.

I was very surprised that aged shochu can have such a rich flavor. It tastes more like whiskey or brandy than shochu . Since it's shochu, there are many ways to enjoy it, but first I enjoyed it slowly, in small amounts on the rocks or straight. A little bit of chocolate and hard rich cheeses such as mimolette went well with it. I would like to find something else that fits. This item is recommended for home parties and gifts for loved ones from now until the end of the year.
This is a very valuable brown sugar shochu. Serve straight or on the rocks. For snacks, pineapple or brown sugar go well. Please try drinking it while enjoying the tropical feeling.

For those who don't like shochu, we recommend this " 2009 Shofuji Umeshu".
“Ancient Sake 2009 Shofuji Umeshu”
The brewery is Sakiyama Sake Brewery, which was founded in 1905 in Kin Town, Okinawa Prefecture.
Awamori produced in 2009 was carefully soaked with Nanko plums from Minabe, Kishu , creating a rich taste and richness. Brown sugar from Okinawa is used for the sweetness, resulting in a richly sweet plum wine.
