Rice shochu awakened from a 30-year slumber.

■ What is "Genkei -GENKEI- Kome 30 Years"?

"Genkei -GENKEI- Kome 30 Years" is a 30-year aged rice shochu crafted by a venerable sake brewery with a history of over 300 years in Kashima City, Saga Prefecture. For its raw material, it uses carefully cultivated edible rice from Kagoshima Prefecture, rich in umami. Employing the method of "vacuum distillation," which steams the ingredients slowly at low temperatures, results in a shochu with minimal impurities and a refreshing, light taste. Following distillation, the shochu is stored in highly sealed tanks, preserving the essence and aroma of the rice itself. After maturing for 30 years, the shochu allows the flavor of the rice to develop fully and meticulously.

■ Elegant and mellow richness packed with the charm of rice.

Its distinctive feature is the full-bodied aroma reminiscent of freshly cooked rice. Upon tasting, an elegant sweetness derived from the rice and a mellow richness unfold. The pleasantly rounded and comforting flavor, inviting a sense of relief, is best enjoyed slowly on the rocks or with water. We recommend savoring this aged spirit, packed with the allure of rice, slowly and deliberately.
