Ginjo Yuzushu

吟醸柚子酒 The Akashi Sake Brewery

Our Akashi-Tai Yuzu liqueur uses an exceptionally high quantity of fresh yuzu from the Hyogo prefecture, which is pressed on arrival to preserve the clear aroma of the rare citrus fruit highly prized in Japan. It offers a touch of originality to the most refined cocktails and can be drunk neat or on ice as an aperitif or after dinner.

Properties

Supple and fruity, with refreshing aromas of grapefruit, it offers intense citrusy flavours and a sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the tanginess of the yuzu. The finale is invigoratingly cooling and aromatic.
