As time passes, the ingredients inside of Awamori continue to mature and the flavor changes even after bottling. Awamori that has been aged for three years or more is called ”KUSU”, meaning “old alcohol”. KAZE is a Awamori blend whose name means wind. Its water is sourced from the Ryuhi's ancient fountain near Okinawa’s Shuri Castle. KAZE is a KUSU, carefully matured for five years, resulting in a smooth and supremely refined product. Savor it on its own, neat, with a splash of water, or in a cocktail, shaken or stirred.
