Kikusui is a rum distillery located south of the archipelago on the island of Shikoku in Kuroshio, a village in the east of the Kochi prefecture known as the oldest producer of sugar cane in Japan. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was even the biggest producer. With this important local production of sugar cane, Kikusui decided to developed a new rum : the Ryoma, a unic japanese rum inspired by foreign traditional techniques.
Made from freshly pressed cane, it’s then put into oak barrels for aging seven years. Its rich and sweet texture and the aromas of vanilla and caramel, typical of aged rums, make Ryoma an excellent rum that will appeal to lovers of caribbean rums.
