The tenth session of Cocktail Spirits Online was held on Tuesday, March 23, from 14:30 to 16:30 pm. On the last day of the tour, we had a live broadcast from Kumamoto Prefecture’s Jufuku Distillery, where Mr. Thierry said, “Kinuko Jufuku is a very courageous woman, and I was very moved by her story. After that, Ryota Yoshimatsu gave a tour of the Distillery and explained about their specialties.
The three items we tasted this time were Mushagaeshi Genshu（Jufuku Distillery), Yam atozakura (Yamatozakura Distillery), AOKAGE (Yanagita Distillery). We asked everyone to taste the three products in the “sample kit” that was delivered to them beforehand and asked for their honest impressions. While they were surprised to taste it for the first time, the aroma and delicate taste seemed to stir the imagination of the participants, and one after another, we received beautiful and elegant comments about the dishes and flavors they wanted to pair with it.
We ended the meeting with a promise to continue introducing shochu and awamori to the world!
