Shizuoka Shochu Tasting 2-1: Hamamatsu Brewery/Douman


Here is a fine example of what can be brewed with first class sake white lees (sake kasu)!
Douman is the name of a rare crab found in Hamanako Lake, a sea water lake famous for its oysters and eels.
With an alcoholic content of 28 degrees, it is easy to drink. It leaves a soft, almost sweet lingering taste in the palate. I enjoyed it yesterday with a curry. Surprisingly enough the curry did not compete with its taste. I drank it straight over a jugfull of ice. A great shochu for ladies and beginners!
Produced by Tenjigura-Hamamatsu Brewery, in Hamamatsu City, Tenjin Machi, 3-57.
Bottled in 720ml and 1.8l
Can be ordered online.
