We are explorers who love discovering new spirits and making them more accessible to others. We will update this site as we track down, learn, and drink. All of this is for science, of course.

With more than a few hundred spirits in this category, there are so many more possibilities of new cocktails. We’ll be reporting from the front lines on new shochu recipes crafted by bartenders.
We’d love to hear from you.
