General information: Ginza is best known as a popular tokyo neighborhood which makes it misleading as a name for a shochu, suggesting it as a product that is more trendy and commercial than a high-quality product. This couldn't be further from the truth. Ginza is an aged shochu from a distillery located in a remote village on kyushu island that has been producing sake since 1864. Ginza no Suzume Kohaku is a shochu with a complex style. Ginza is a barley shochu, very similar to iichiko, considered delicate and tasty as an appetizer shochu but this is different. Kohaku is aged in American oak barrels, these give the shochu its golden and woody tint, smoked on the nose and taste. On the palate you can perceive the taste of earth that gradually turns into a caramel to end with a finish reminiscent of mint. Overall it tastes very similar to a very dry whisky due to its aging.
