Shochu Pros Shochu’sday #36: Awamori, Baby!
January 26 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Stephen and Christopher give some love to a really unknown category of indigenous Japanese spirits. Okinawan Awamori is older than shochu and made in a more rustic style. This shows through the resulting distillate, but longterm aging in ceramic pots turns this potent, unctuous spirit into a splendidly warm, rich, softly sweet sipper.
As we looked back through our first 35 episodes we realized that we had not given awamori nearly as much love as we intended (early test episodes were awamori heavy). This should help start to rectify that.
