Delicious yuzushu from Okayama, full of yuzu flavour but with a heavier and more syrupy texture giving it a sour citrus flavour and then a sweeter note.
Gozenshu was founded 1804 in Katsuyama, Okinawa and is currently led by Okayama’s first female Toji (head brewer) Maiko Tsuji who is the 7th generation of this family owned brewery.
This yuzushu is made using an ancient technique originally used by the Bodaisen monks (before kimoto) which uses a small amount of cooked rice thrown in with raw rice and water to create a lactic water which is then used for the sake.
A fantastic yuzushu for those seeking a sweet and sour drink perfect for summer. Try over ice.
