Kojika Ao tonbo (dragonfly) Shochu 720mL
  • Country: Japan

  • Size: 720ml
  • Alcohol Volume: 25%

Like a dragonfly freely flying in the sky, it’s a sweet potato shochu with the character of a brisk and refreshing feeling. In order to enjoy it on the rocks, we maintained a delicate balance, keeping the sweet potato aroma in check with light floral notes.

Strong distinctive sweet potato ('imo') flavour, drink with half water and half shochu (recommended). 

Kagoshima, situated at the base of the southernmost island of Japan, 'Kyushu',  produces the best (some say) imo shochu in Japan, in addition to their famous 'kurobuta' black pork and wagyu beef. In fact there are no sake breweries to speak of in Kagoshima. This is a classic style and while a bit more expensive than the other rice and buckwheat based shochu is generally considered superior. 

Food recommendation:  Kurobuta pork shabu shabu, grilled steak, tempura.
