The first shochu produced by Kirishima Shuzo’s founder, Kichisuke Enatsu, in 1916 was a black koji-based shochu, which marked the start of Kirishima Shuzo’s long history. Kuro Kirishima recreates the flavours of that first black koji-based shochu.


Kuro Kirishima is a relatively easy-drinking, smooth entry-level imo shochu. Its flavours are much richer than most barley or rice shochus.


The black koji creates a round sweetness, with a distinctly crisp aftertaste.

Service Recommendations:

It is most refreshing served on the rocks, offering enjoyment of the delicate aroma.


Food Pairing Suggestions:

This is an easy-to-drink shochu that goes well with a wide variety of food.
