The Asahara Suzo fruit liqueurs are made at a sake brewery in Okumusashi, a green and hilly area where the cultivation of fruit trees, including plums and Yuzus, is highly developed. This abundance of fresh local produce encouraged the producer to turn their talents to the prodcution of fruit-based liqueurs.
The Yuzu fruits are macerated in sugar-cane based neutral alcohol for several weeks. At the end of the process, macerated fruits are crushed mashed and re-incorporated to the final product, together with sugar syrup, and more fresh crushed fruits. This is bottled unfiltered to retain maximum purity.
Tasting Note: Unfiltered, with zippy, tangy acidity; flavours of intense citrus and great length. Great vibrancy with wonderful fresh, pure, eye-opening Yuzu character.
Food Match: Ideal as a digestif, with pudding such as a lemon drizzle cake or citrus sorbet. A great cocktail ingredient.
