Say hello to Shochu – the traditionally-distilled and fermented Japanese spirit set to be the next big trend from the East – which is taking over the drinks list at Japanese hotspot Junsei on 19th September for one night only.
Authentically Japanese and no stranger to traditional, hyper-regional ingredients, Chef Patron Aman Lakhiani has come together with sake samurai and global educator Natsuki Kikuya, recognised by the Japanese government for her services to the drinks industry, to host a one-of-a-kind special Oma-Shochu supper club with signature Junsei dishes paired with shochu.
The five-course tasting menu will feature seasonal plates of white soy-marinated tomato with sansho and Hamachi tartare before a selection of Aman’s signature chicken skewers arrive fresh from the Japanese Binchōtan charcoal grill, with four cuts – consciously using every part of the bird – and two kushiyaki (vegetable) skewers. Each dish will be paired with a different perfectly made served high ball, on the rocks or with hot water to perfectly complement each vintage’s individual flavour profile.
The limited-edition Oma-Shochu tasting menu will be available on Monday 19th September only. Tickets for the tasting menu and drinks pairings are extremely limited, cost £90pp and available via Design My Night here.
