Global spirits brand Beam Suntory has announced they will be releasing the distilled spirit Koyomi Shochu into the Australian market.
With a low ABV of 25% Shochu is one of the most popular white spirits and brings with it a true taste of Japan, with a crisp, refreshing, and versatile taste.Koyomi embodies both the sophistication and cutting edge of Japanese culture.
Unlike sake, wine or beer, shochu is distilled using processes similar to whisky and gin and is made from grains. The artistic Koyomi label features a crane bird, symbolising good fortune and longevity in Japan, which is a nod to the rich history of shochu and Japan.
As versatile as vodka and as food-friendly as wine, the most popular way of enjoying shochu is Koyomi Blush, a refreshing cocktail of Shochu, Lime Juice, Lychee Juice and Pineapple Juice.
