Lush grain aroma followed by hints of pear and citrus flavors accented by tropical spice. The finish is clean and long with notes of spice, steel and green olive.
An authentic Honkaku Shochu (also known as Ostu-rui, or "real thing"), Tombo is single pot distilled from North American barley and white koji. Drawn from the head and body of the distillation process and aged six months in stainless steel tanks, Tombo retains full flavor yet is quite mellow and easy to sip. Despite similarities, Tombo shochu is not vodka and we find it more refined than much of it's Korean relatives known as Soju.
