Nagakumo is made by Yamada Distillery located on Amami Ōshima, a small island surrounded by the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean (inbetween Kyūshu and Okinawa). It is known as the Galapagos of the east, and is blessed with natural beauty. Nagakumo uses the pristine waters of the Nagakumo mountain range and the very best sugar cane grown in the tropics of Japan. The craftsmen of Yamada Distillery still maintain the traditional single distillation process at normal atmospheric pressures, and then they age the shōchū for a minimum of 2 years, this care and dedication is to bring out the natural flavours and aromas of the brown sugar.
Fresh apricot and lychee aroma. When chilled, dry hit of alcohol leaving lingering, sharp aftertaste. Great for wakening the palate and digestion before eating.
Keep refrigerated once opened.
