This 100% barley shochu was made by hand using white koji before being distilled just once in an atmospheric pot still which brings out richer aromas and allows for optimal aging. It was aged for more than 11 years, spending some time in ceramic pots and some time in enamel tanks. The ceramic aging allows some oxidation, which creates a rich, umami-laden drink that shines on the rocks or diluted with hot water.


Mugi (barley) / Furusawa Jyozo, Miyazaki (odotsu village)

The experience: While excellent served with chilled water or on ice, to truly appreciate the complex aromas and flavors of Nakanaka we recommend to drink it oyuwari (cut with hot water) which unlocks a lot of the subtleties and allow the chocolate notes to linger on the tongue. (Words from Skurnik Wine & Spirits)

Process:  Distillation: Vacuum, ABV 35%, Aged 11 years

Ingredients: Distilled from 100% mugi (barley), Koji: White(barley)

Storage: keep in a cool, dark place
