A Japanese rice spirit, made in Africa
Tanuki Shōchū

Africa’s first Shōchū


Shōchū is a rice spirit distilled from rice wine, similar to distilling brandy from grape wine. We adapted traditional Japanese methods and combined them with South African creativity, resourcefulness and skill to produce Africa’s first locally made Shōchū. This unique blend of cultures and tastes ensure an experience unlike anything you ever had.
Tanuki Shōchū

Natural


We follow traditional Japanese methods and only use the four ingredients allowed in rice wine and Shōchū: rice, water, yeast and koji (a cousin of yeast).
