This product is an old barley shochu that has been aged for over 35 years from the extremely rare domestic vintage ``1984 authentic barley shochu unprocessed sake ``Prefecture'' (prepared by Prefecture Sake Brewery / Kumamoto Prefecture)''.
The richness of long-aged shochu has been transformed into richness and aroma, and it is characterized by a mellow and sweet taste.
Japanese sake is a rare alcoholic beverage in the world that can be enjoyed at different temperature ranges, and ``Ancient Beauty'' also has this characteristic. Drinking it slightly warmed or chilled, or on the rocks, is a good way to enjoy the change in aroma and taste.
It also has a high alcohol content of 38%, so mix it with hot or cold water to your liking.
I think you will be able to discover pairings with various dishes.
