Choices, choices! As someone who has lived in Okinawa for a long time and being involved with local spirits, I often get asked to recommend a brand of awamori. I am happy to hear that people are interested in learning more about Japan's oldest spirit, so I decided to make it the topic of my very first podcast. This is intended for beginners who are curious about awamori and people who are interested in Okinawan culture. Cheers!
