Join us as we welcome Yoko and Kayoko from Umami Mart for an in depth introduction to the world of shochu!
In their own words: "Shochu tends to be the drink of choice around here at Umami Mart, but we know that it's still pretty unfamiliar terrain. We firmly believe that there is a place for shochu in the States, but it may take a while to get there. But we're here to help educate and slowly open the doors onto the vast and deep realm of Japan's distilled liquor."
This class includes tasting of different types of shochu (rice, barley, sweet potato, soba!), recommended food pairings, temperature suggestions, a bit of cultural history and background, and even a shochu cocktail to round it all out!
