Dassai Shochu is made by distilling Dassai sake lees, fresh of the day.
Because of the way it is made, we can't produce as much as we would like, but it allows us to keep the clean aromas of Dassai in the shochu.
The alcohol content is set at 39% because we believe it brings out the aromas better this way.
How to keep it?
Please keep it in the fridge (less than 10°C), and enjoy it within a month or two after purchase.
After opening, we recommend to enjoy it within the week.
Please avoid direct sunlight as premium sake such as Dassai are very sensitive to light and high temperature - it would negatively affects its aromas and flavor profile.
How to enjoy it?
We recommend to serve it at 10 to 12°C, year round - with a friend, your partner or even by yourself.
Dassai pairs well with French and Italian cuisine, but of course Japanese cuisine as well.
Dassai is not a hard liquor, but a fermented alcohol and has only 16% alcohol content.
