A San Francisco-based spirit company has created Haamonii spirit, an ultra-smooth, 100% natural, premium grain version of Japan’s 400 year old tipple, possessing the best of sochu’s natural characteristics, without the painful end game. Marketed much like luxury vodka, Haamonii comes in two flavours (original and lemon-scented), and has a remarkably clean, fresh and head-friendly taste as it washes across the palate. In fact, Haamonii has already been deemed the bell of the ball, winning seven medals to date, including gold from the judges who labelled Grey Goose as the world’s top vodka. Hong Kong bars are already adopting Haamonii into modern cocktail culture, where its 22% alcohol volume makes more friends than enemies.
There will be none of that sense of dread and craving for a 1am whopper with this drop.
