Rehei Ginger Shochu
Rihei Ginger, a meticulously handcrafted, single-distilled Honkaku Shochu from Japan. This one-of-a-kind shochu is made from local ginger from Miyazaki Prefecture. With 38% alcohol genshu this Japanese craft spirit contains 20% ginger, 30% rice, and 50% barley. Named after the distillery’s founder, Rihei Ochiai, this 4th generation, family run distillery honors the traditions of their 100-year-old past while taking on a modern twist for the 21st century. While this spirit is new to the US, it has already received noteworthy attention by the Los Angeles International Spirits Competition by winning bronze medals in the shochu category and for overall packaging design aesthetics. Ochiai started producing this ginger shochu after local farmers heard a buzz of Ochiai’s success with other unique local ingredients and came to the distillery requesting he craft a new shochu made from their amazing quality ginger.
