About this event

This interactive masterclass will present three artisanal shochu labels distilled from the three most popular base ingredients. Guests can broaden their palate through this flavour-led experience, while expanding their knowledge on Japan’s most consumed spirit under the guidance of Kuromaru’s expert team.

The masterclass will include a sampling of each label, an accompaniment of Japanese bar snacks, one of three exclusive cocktails made by the bar team using these shochu labels, and a shochu highball of your choice – made by you.

local community, few outside of Japan know of its unique qualities that distinguish it from other liquors.

Experience three unique and wildly diverse shochu labels:

  • Mori No Yousei 17% Yaki Imo (Grilled Sweet Potato): subtle smoky, fruity and nutty flavours
  • Kawabe Kome 25% (Rice): delicate notes of rice and melon
  • Juo Mugi 25% (Barley): distinct aroma of wet dough and brioche

After trying each label, guests have the option to choose which label to craft their own highball with, under the guidance of Kuromaru’s skilled bar team.
