I didn’t know I needed this podcast
This podcast has taught me so much in such a short amount of time. Chris and Stephen are clearly some of the most passionate and qualified folks studying the world of Japanese spirits on the planet earth. I’ve now started my shochu and awamori journey purely because of this podcast, and with their insight I feel hyper equipped to enjoy this wonderful tradition! Thank you! As an avid homebrewer and lover of Japanese culture, I couldn’t believe I had never heard of these indigenous spirits. I’m now so happy to take on this new study, and I have been discussing and spreading the shochu gospel with all of the professional and home brewers I know, including a pro sake brewer in my area (kasutori in our future?). Many a kanpai over shochu in my local community will commence as a result of this podcast. I’ve even started some koji ferments with a goal of making some shochu some day in the future. Keep it up guys! You’re crushing it. Now I just need to find some kokuto shochu to share with the rum distillery near my house. Soon!

Fantastic podcast. I’ve listened to every ep so far and follow their channels so I don’t miss the updates. Stephen and Christopher are pros and very knowledgeable, and their chemistry makes the podcast fun to listen to.

Learning about Japanese spirits from the pros while keeping it lighthearted is a winning combo. Highly recommended!

This is a great podcast for people who are interested in shochu, whisky, or sake. Especially for folks outside Japan.
