Shochu ("show-chew") is like a smooth vodka, softer and lighter.
In Japan, it's more popular than sake!

UMAI is made right here in Maryland

Shochu mixes well with everything. 
There are endless possibilities.
Shochu and ...fruit sodas ...oolong or green tea ....juices ...even beer!

It makes for new, light cocktails, just the way you'd like. Experiment! We think you'll love it!
Then again, shochu connoisseurs also enjoy premium shochu straight or on ice. 
In Japan, shochu cocktails are called Chuhai ("chew-high"). 


Mde  in Frederick, Maryland, where there is a lively growing community of craft distilleries, breweries and wineries.

OMAI! has been taste-tested by the Chairman and execs of the Brewing Society of Japan. Their comment was,  Please sell it in America, where it's not well known!"

Tasting Notes
Black cherry and boysenberry are overlaid by cocoa shavings, saddle leather and forest floor. The front palate shows off the structure of the vintage, yielding juicy tannins and great weight. Red dried fruit gives way to rich notes of mocha and toasted pecan. The dash of Malbec provides depth and concentration while the Merlot and Cab Franc provide elegance and complexity worthy of its Bordeaux roots. With abundant tannins and well-balanced acidity this wine will age beautifully for the next 8-10 years.


Winemaker Notes
The 2014 Mauritson Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is restrained and complex. Taking advantage of our incredible diversity of fruit sourcing, we can hone in on the best that Northern Sonoma County has to offer. Each vineyard and each varietal add nuance and layer to the blend, creating a wine that is subtle and over-delivers.

100% Garnacha, Sierra de Gredos.The isolated Gredos mountain range starts at around 120 kilometres west of Madrid and is home to a mosaic of tiny, old-vine vineyards planted mainly to Garnacha or Grenache. Alfredo pulls this wine together from seven small plots located in Navarredondilla (part of the Ávila district) that are situated at around a staggering 4,000 feet in elevation. In contrast to his organically-managed Ribera del Duero sites, these vineyards are farmed biodynamically (perhaps thanks to the 'extra' assistance he receives here from his green friends captured on the label!).

Crushed by foot, with 100% whole bunches retained, the wine is fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel. The result is Spanish Garnacha in its most glowing form, and a wine that typifies Maestro's delicate touch and respect for his land. Striking a perfect balance of perfume, power and refinement, we’re not going to disagree with Señor Gutiérrez, below. It's a wine bursting with spicy, dark cherry, liquorice and lavender aromas and flavours. The powdery, high grown finish brings it all together. Superb. 

Crown Royal Texas Mesquite is a blend of Crown Royal Deluxe infused with the smoky soul of locally sourced Texas mesquite wood. The result is a unique flavor that is smoky and spicy with the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal.
