Barrel to Bottle Samples Shochu

We like to get esoteric on Barrel to Bottle, but this might be our most esoteric topic yet: Shochu(not to be confused with Soju). What is it, how is it made, what does it taste like and what do you do with it?

This week we welcome Jay, Binny's resident Shochu expert/enthusiast, to answer these questions. He’s here to guide us through Shochu 101, sampling Shochus from four different styles.

If you have a question for the Barrel to Bottle Crew, email us at, or reach out to us on FacebookTwitter or Instagram. If we answer your question during a podcast, you’ll get a $20 Binny’s Gift Card!
