Shochu is the native spirit of Japan—a white spirit that offers an incredibly rich flavor, a light structure, and a smooth finish. Iichiko Shochu is made from 100% barley and crafted in the Oita Prefecture—a region famous for its dense cedar forest, mountainous terrain, and geothermal springs.

Crafted specifically for the modern bartender, iichiko Saiten is a full-flavored expression of 100% barley shochu at 43% ABV (86 proof) that is perfect for cocktails. The nose is redolent with aromas of honeydew melon, white grapes, and kabosu citrus, with a hint of soy, white pepper and barley notes.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Origins

iichiko is the result of a true harmony between nature and science. These natural elements are paired with cutting-edge technology and clean production techniques that ensure quality and consistency. This allows iichiko to be distilled only once, to preserve maximum flavor and character, but with an elegant, aromatic nose and a very smooth finish. iichiko is a Honkaku Shochu, the highest grade of shochu. This grade can only use one type of ingredient, can only be distilled once to preserve rich flavor and character, and no sweeteners or additives can be used. iichiko uses 100% two-row barley in its shochu, known as mugi (barley) shochu. This barley is polished to remove impurities and unlock the characteristic flavor and character of barley. iichiko uses water sources that are naturally filtered through 1000 feet of volcanic rock. This exceptionally soft, iron-free water is vital to making award-winning shochu.
