Nankai Gold Fashioned

Our take on the classic Old Fashioned. We’ve replaced whiskey with our award-winning Nankai Gold Shochu which has been barrel-aged in a variety of casks for balance and depth. Many have told us the Nankai Gold Fashioned is their favorite Old Fashioned so we’d love to hear if you agree.

Nankai Gold Fashioned = Japanese Old Fashioned

The Nankai Gold Fashioned was born our of love for whisky cocktails. When you think of whisky cocktails, the classic Old Fashioned is probably the first one that comes to mind. And it’s well deserved to be remembered for it’s a timeless template. When you apply the same techniques and ingredients to a craft spirit like shochu, particularly one that has been barrel-aged in American White Oak and French Limousin Oak, what do you suppose you’ll get? A damn good Old Fashioned is what.
