ABOUT THE LIQUID
Haku® is made with 100% Japanese white rice. It has 3 distinct steps in the distillation process:
First, Japanese rice is fermented and distilled through a pot still to create a rice spirit in Kagoshima, Japan
Then, the rice spirit is distilled a second time through 2 different processes in a pot still and column still to create a uniquely flavored liquid
Finally, the liquid is blended and then filtered through bamboo charcoal in Osaka, Japan.
he name Haku® celebrates the origin and the craft of this Premium Japanese Vodka. The kanji (Japanese character) for Haku® means “white”. But the subtlety of the Japanese language often gives kanji several readings. Read as “shiro” it would merely means white. But read as “haku”, it is intentionally rooted and elevated.
Rooted as referring to “Hakumai” (白米) – Japanese white rice- the origin of the liquid. Elevated as evoking “Junpaku” (純白) – “untainted” and brilliant – a tribute to the craft of mastering a clear, clean and luminous vodka, carefully filtrated through bamboo charcoal for an unparalleled soft, round and subtly sweet taste.
