Rice Shochu Kome SG Shochu
  • Rice shochu produced in the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan by Takahashi Shuzo in collaboration with SG Shochu
  • Distilled from 100% Rice
  • Saccharification is done with white koji in tandem with a ginjo-style fermentation
  • Ginjo fermentation utilizes specific yeasts and long, low fermentation to produce delicate floral and sweet aromas
  • Vacuum-distilled once on a stainless steel pot still
  • Rested in stainless steel and proofed with water from the Kuma River
  • A subtle nose of baker’s sugar, purple flowers, fresh apple, and lime zest set the scene for a silky palate of delicate orange blossom honey and freesia flower with a final lash of piquant citrus oil before light salinity closes the arc
  • Double Gold Medal Winner at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition
  • 40% ABV

Long, low fermentation tailored to created delicate floral aromas is coupled with vacuum distillation to preserve them, yielding a complex and radiantly fresh rice distillate. A proof of 40% ensures these nuances retain their voice when mixed in cocktails. KOME makes a great substitution for gin or vodka; pair seamlessly with fresh fruit, citrus, fresh herbs and greens, add exuberant dimension to earthy, vegetal flavors, or simply top with soda for a refreshing highball to pair with dinner.
