KIZUNA

We will ship within 2 business days

A rich, higher-grade taste brought only by luxurious wheat.

Although shochu is a distilled alcoholic beverage, we believe that its identity lies in the brewing process.
``Kijina'' is a barley shochu, but the same goes for potato shochu and rice shochu.
Using a manufacturing method called ``All Koji 3-stage preparation'', we lock in only the good taste and aroma of the barley, and bottle it after aging for 5 years.











Features

The true value of barley shochu



Luxurious use of barley koji.
It is brewed using a 3-stage all-koji process that brings out the full flavor of the barley, and after distillation, it is aged in tanks for 5 years.


aroma/taste

It's like freshly baked toast.


Smells like bread and bitter chocolate.
Rich barley sweetness and a fine, mellow flavor. It has a light fruit flavor.

manufacturing

1. Ingredients that give the rich sweetness and richness of barley

The barley used in ``Kijina'' is two-rowed barley, ``Hoshun'' and ``Haruka Nijo,'' cultivated through years of research and development and the fertile Chikushi Plain.
``Hoshun'' has a sweetness reminiscent of fruit, and ``Haruka Nijo'' has a delicate, rich flavor that is unique to barley.

2. Three stages of whole koji preparation to bring out the maximum potential of barley

There are two characteristics of ``Zen-koji 3-stage preparation''.
・We use three times as much barley koji as usual, making it extremely luxurious. ・To make authentic shochu that brings out the original taste of barley to the fullest with the power of koji, we use raw materials grown with koji mold (rice koji, barley koji, etc.) Currently, the mainstream preparation method is two-stage preparation, in which a second mash is made and then the steamed main ingredients are poured over it for a second mash and fermentation.
On the other hand, in ``Zenkoji 3-stage preparation'', koji is used not only for the first preparation, but also for the second and third preparation. For shochu, the quality and quantity of koji are important, so this ``all-koji 3-stage preparation'' can be said to be a very luxurious method for making shochu. Although it takes time and money, it brings the original taste of barley to ``Kijina''.


3. Aging brings out the depth of the wheat and the mellow richness

The wine is aged for 5 years in enamel tanks, where it is not affected by external influences such as the transfer of scent from the storage container. Therefore, the original taste of barley can be expressed. In addition, after 5 years of aging, the fruit-like sweetness of the barley changes to a deep, rich sweetness, and in addition to the natural sweetness of the barley, it brings a fine and mellow richness.
A bottle that can only be created by aging for 5 years, using Ebisu Sake Brewery's 135 years of technology, and paying close attention to the raw materials without sparing effort or cost. That is "Kijina".

SHOCHU X

こんにちは!セブンリッチの市澤さんからの紹介でKIZUNA・NAGOMI・25年熟成をのサンプルを頂き、テイスティングさせていただきました(KUZUNAは、サンプルボトルをとあるお店に渡してしまってので、フルボトルを購入)。
KIZUNA・NAGOMI、この2種は、それぞれ原材料の良質な感じがよく出ていました。NAGOMIのサンプルボトルは、半分頂いて半分を残してあったのですが、最初よりも後のほうがアルコールが若干落ちたのかまろやかで、米の優しさが出ていました。ただ、KIZUNAは、フルボトルの封空けすぐで麹感が強く、少し時間をおいてから再度味をみてみたいなと思っています。あと、25年熟成ですが、これも2度に分けて味を見させて頂いたのですが、時間が経った2度目が、不思議なことにさわやかな吟醸香を感じました。麦なのになぜなんでしょう?
