Asakura Barrel Aged Shochu – Sakura Blended Cask Finish


Barley shochu is aged in shochu seasoned oak for 6 years.

The contents of a seasoned shochu barrel are transferred to Japanese cherry blossom cask. To overcome the intensity of robust sakura barrels, this product is balanced with Cognac and Sherry Cask finish shochu.

The powerful notes of Sakura cask impart an distinctive, floral flavour which is supported by a foundation of Asakura Brandy (Cognac) and Sherry Cask finish.

A pure example of the Japanese doctrine of balance in action, Sakura Blended Cask is a harmony of flavours captained by the incomparable Japanese icon that is Sakura
