Iichiko Frasco Mugi Shochu - Oita, Kyushu, Japan (750ml)
A superb, premium shochu from Iichiko distillery, Frasco is clean, pure and elegant. Made from highly pearled malted barley (aka Koji) that has been fermented at low-temperature, it is then distilled with fresh, pure water from Oita prefecture. Incredibly delicate, it is yet rich and flavorful. Aromas of cantaloupe mangos and honey suckle, the palate is silky and well-rounded complemented by subtle savory notes. Enjoy this elegant Shochu neat, on the rocks or with caviar.
