Made from 100% select barley, Kannoko, which means ‘river protected by the gods’ in the southern Japanese Kagoshima dialect, is named after a stream in South Kagoshima. It is aged in oak barrels for 3 years and has a rich taste. This barley shochu in a beautiful glass bottle is made by master distiller Satsuma Shuzo. Kannoko has a rich and mellow flavour with fragrant aroma. Its amber colour comes naturally from the 3 year oak barrel aging process it undergoes.
