Colorful Honkaku Sweet Potato & Rice Shochu

Item # 49327 750mL

Created at the Shoro Disitllery in Miyazaki, this special edition release combines three spirits. The first is an Indica rice shochu fermented with wild yeasts and the other two feature two different sweet potato distillates. Everything about this is different, from the types of potatoes to the color of koji used for fermentation. The first potato spirit comes from a batch made in 2017 while the most recent one was distilled in September 2020. The team at Shoro Distillery uses these elements to create a completely seamless spirit that is perfectly balanced and full of nuance. Subtle in a way only a master of the craft could achieve. One of the top shochus in class.

Staff Pick Notes

Premium shochu is one of the most captivating (and underrated) categories in our store. The aromas and flavors are at once recognizable and fascinatingly new. Shoro is a small distillery remotely located at the edge of the Miyazaki prefecture near the Pacific Ocean. Helmed by Hiroaki Yano, a forward thinking toji who defies expectations to bring creative new beverages to the market, his Colorful Shochu is innovative due to the blend of distillates. Made from two types of sweet potatoes distilled in different years, this offers a fruit forward entry (think ripe melons), supported by subtle earthy notes. If you are in search of new and unique flavor combinations, then look no further. Shochu is where it's at!
