Mizu Green Tea Shochu
About Mizu Green Tea Shochu
It is said that the very first seedlings of green tea in Japan were planted by the Zen Buddhist monk Myoan Eisai on a mountain in Saga Prefecture more than 800 years ago. This heritage is a great source of pride for the local farmers in the nearby town of Ureshino, which is well known for producing some of the most sought after sencha in all Japan. This legacy also serves as the inspiration for this wonderfully rich and fragrant Green Tea shochu. At 70 proof it is more concentrated, like shochus of old, to enhance the aroma, complexities, body and finish. Rich, bold, fragrant and delicious.

We promise, you have never had anything like this before. The green tea flavor in this shochu is so intense and full of umami, it tastes like you are biting into a piece of matcha-dusted seaweed. You’re gonna love it! - Umami Mart, CA
Hand crafted in the traditional way, the shochu is single distilled from a mash of local harvests; two-rowed barley, black koji rice, and freshly picked, then steamed, Ureshino green tea leaves.
