Japan has a reputation for making high-quality products. It is no wonder that its distilleries are well respected.

Every Japanese alcoholic product equals or is better than the original ones. Japanese whiskey is a world class. I love it. My favorite one is Japanese Shōchū fermented and distilled from sweet potato, which is ubiquitous in Japanese supermarkets. Unfortunately the climate of the Japanese archipelagos are not suitable for cultivating grape, producing nice wine.

Oh yes. So many different and delicious varieties. I made some last year with the karin and let it do its magic for a year. Not bad, if a wee bit tart.
