Freshly emptied 450 l Mugi Shochu barrels made of American white oak.
Shochu spirit, the most popular spirit of Japan, comes from Kagoshima, in the south of Japan, where it has been produced for over 500 years. It is colloquially called the "Vodka of Japan" because of its great popularity. There are many ways to consume the Shochu: with ice, with hot water (tea) or in cocktails.
The distillate is made from rice (kome), sweet potato (imo), wheat (soba) or barley (mugi). Most commonly distilled from barley - as well as the Shochu, that has matured in the barrels - the Mugi Shochu. Distilled from barley it developes a typical, very soft and mild Shochu with a slight barley touch.
The spirit drink has an alcohol content of approx. 25 - 45%.

Used wooden barrels: Notches in the wood or, in certain circumstances, an uneven base, do not
constitute a quality defect, but stem from the idiosyncrasies of the production method and the prior use of the barrels. The usage of the barrel will not be affected by those! The barrels are very carefully checked by us at the exit control against sensor and technical errors. We assume no liability for cracks or splits that occur during maturation. A possible and a reasonable repair is not under guarantee.
