YONAGUNI Ippanshu 30%

Awamori, Japan / Okinawa 70cl Ref: 1764

This non-aged (ippanshu means “common alcohol”) vintage of awamori from the Yonaguni brand is produced on the eponymous island. Distilled from indica rice imported from Thailand, this is undoubtedly the oldest and most traditional spirit of the Okinawa archipelago, created at a time when the islands were still independent of Japan. Bottled at 30% ABV, the strength considered to be ideal for this type of beverage, it displays spiced notes of rice powder as well as flowers and fruit (lychee).

This spirit boasts a long history, with roots that date back to the 15th century and manufacturing techniques that are said to have been imported by South-West Asian traders. The term ‘ippanshu’ refers to a non-aged awamori, with ‘kusu’ meaning aged awamori and ‘hanasaki’ meaning a special awamori, unique to the island of Yonaguni. Sakimoto Shuzo is the oldest distillery on the island of Yonaguni, which is only 150 km from Taiwan and is one of just three distilleries on the archipelago to make ‘hanasaki’. A very special sub-category of awamori with 60.5% ABV, it was originally reserved for the personal consumption of the royal family of Okinawa. Having lost all of its stocks of old awamori during the Second World War, Sakimoto Shuzo is now working for the future, as are many of the distilleries in Okinawa, by gradually rebuilding its collection of awamori that is in the process of ageing.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : colourless
  • Nose : Mellow and subtle, fairly creamy, with distinct notes of boiled rice, rice pudding, soya milk and hard cheese (cheddar).
  • Palate : Smooth and silky. Very rounded with a lovely texture. Very similar to a potato vodka. A rustic touch lends it charm.
  • Overall : Fairly long but subtle. The texture is striking, with a powerful sensation of brown grains (barley, wheat, etc.) shifting towards tropical fruits (banana).
