This pairing course features a selection of dishes for enjoying Kagoshima shochu by Mr. Maeda, a chef from Isa City, who was running an eatery popular among locals. Starting with popular shochu from Isa’s 3 breweries, you can enjoy it straight as recommended by residents, or you can drink it like a cocktail mixed with green tea, black tea, milk, or soda water. You’ll enjoy the shochu’s smooth taste with pairing dishes.
