The Mystery Awamori

When I moved to Japan one of my hopes was to start secondary aging Okinawan awamori at home. While it is nearly impossible to source these ceramic pots in the US, it is not that difficult in Japan so long as you are willing to pay. These are typically reserved for long-aged, or kusu awamori (古酒泡盛), which can run hundreds of dollars per liter especially in the traditional decorative ceramic jars, or “kame” (甕).

To learn more, follow the link below for the rest of the story of how the mystery awamori came to be. Blue Habu is mentioned but more importantly, it is our mission to help spread awamori awareness and appreciation however we can. カンパイ!
