Shochu Pros Shochu’sday #4
June 16, 2020 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
UPDATED: Christopher Pellegrini is available after all so this will take place on his Instagram Live as usual.
This week on Shochu Pros Shochu’sday we welcome our guest Maya Aley, who just wrote her first post for Kanpai about the origins of the Satsuma imo, arguably one of shochu’s most important ingredients. Maya, originally from the Northeastern United States, now lives in Kagoshima Prefecture. She is essentially fluent in the local Satsuma Dialect, which even many Japanese do not understand. Maya is the first American to complete the Kagoshima University Shochu Meister program and now works at the legendary Ishizue Shochu Bar in the heart of the Tenmonkan district in Kagoshima City.
Stephen Lyman will join Christopher Pellegrini for the 1st 30 minutes and then Maya will take over to make her first guest appearance. Please tune in to ask Maya questions or watch later on Christopher’s Instagram TV.
