Ultra Low Calories
24% ABV shochu, like Nankai White Oak, has lower calories per serving than vodka. A 1.5 oz shot of shochu has about 59 calories versus 90 calories for vodka.

Zero Sugar & Carbs
Through the magic of distillation, there are NO SUGAR or CARBS in the final product, even if it is produced from sugarcane. And genuine shochu never has additives.

Nankai White Oak is distilled from 80% sugarcane and 20% rice, both of which are naturally gluten-free.

48 Proof (24% ABV) 

Our Story
Paul and Mai Nakayama went on their honeymoon in the spring of 2015 to Amami, Japan to visit her parents’ hometown. While at a local bar, Paul and Mai were introduced to a vacuum-distilled craft spirit. It was a black sugar shochu that was so easy to drink and so delicious that they enjoyed quite a bit of it. The next day they took a 12-hour boat ride to visit the distillery and learn more about their new favorite spirit.

On the plane back to Los Angeles, Paul and Mai couldn’t stop thinking about their honeymoon shochu and how much their friends in California would love it, too.

This was the beginning of Nankai Shochu and our mission to share shochu with friends old and new.

An Elegant Result
