Produced by the Takara Shuzo located not far from Kyoto, Towari Soba is a shochu that has the specificity of being made from 100% buckwheat, unlike the more classic shochu whose basic ingredients are more rice, barley or sweet potato. Rarely used for the elaboration of shochu, buckwheat is a cereal more difficult to ferment with Koji and its use is a feat that reveals a real know-how in saccharification.
This specificity is fully expressed during tasting with a fruity profile that is accompanied by a slight smoky taste like Scottish single malts. Distilled under normal pressure to obtain rich and deep flavors, this shochu has a silky and delicate texture that will accompany fish, pork or chicken dishes as well as spicy dishes.
Shochu is a white alcohol resembling vodka Titrant between 20 and 45 °, and are distilled from different ingredients such as sweet potato, rice, barley or brown sugar.
