Join us for an introductory masterclass on Shochu & Awamori, two fascinating Japanese spirits

Learn about the different production methods and styles of Shochu & Awamori and taste a carefully curated flight of premium samples.

Shochu (焼酎) is Japan’s oldest spirit typically distilled from rice (kome), barley (mugi), sweet potatoes (imo), buckwheat (soba), or brown sugar (kokuto), among other ingredients. In fact, Shochu is consumed more than nihonshu (Japanese sake) in Japan although the latter is often heralded as Japan's national drink; as for Awamori (泡盛), it is an alcoholic beverage similar to Shochu, but indigenous and unique to Okinawa, made from long-grain indica rice in a single fermentation exclusively using black koji.
