Size: 750 ml
Type of Shochu: Otsu Rui
Main Ingredient: Rice (KOME)
Distillery Location: Kumamoto Prefecture
Food Pairings: Pairs easily with many dishes, and brings out the flavor of companion ingredients.Tasting Notes: The #1 sellling premium rice shochu in Japan - Hakutake Shiro Kome Shochu - is clean and easy with an elegant aroma and a soft mouthfeel. Takahashi Shuzo makes it with water from the Hitoyoshi basin, which is high in minerals, and flavorful rice. Makes a perfect low-calorie vodka replacement in cocktails.
Hakutake Shiro is a lovely, balanced kumajochu in the best tradition of the style. While smooth enough to drink straight, on the rocks really smooths out the alcohol and makes this something to drink with any light meat or fish dish. Making mizuwari (blended with ice water) will lighten it further while Takahashi-san assures me that it is deliciously aromatic when made oyuwari (with hot water). I’ll be trying that come winter.
