Also known as “Aromatic Tangerine,” Kaori Mikan is a Junmai sake-base mandarin liqueur. Great to use as a cocktail ingredient, like Exotic Mimosas, or serve as a dessert wine.

Taste

Refreshing citrus notes with a touch of nectarine. Subtle bitterness of its skins mix up nicely and unfold in the palate. Very elegant sweetness leads to the finish.
