Shochu / Soju
Spirit Sub Type:
One of Japan’s most iconoclastic distillers, Junpei Kanemaru was born into a shochu family that sold their distillery when he was a boy. In his early 20s Kanemaru found a defunct distillery filled with 19th century equipment and restarted the family tradition of shochu making. Instead of depth and funk his sweet potato shochu is delicate and rewards the patient drinker with subtle tropical notes.
