Named after the Japanese word for tears, Namida is flavoured with pure Wasabia japonica rhizome, not the coloured horseradish derived fake wasabi commonly found in the west. The bottles are screen printed with the profile of Wasabia japonica leaves and carry both the batch and bottle number. Read more

(batch 002, bot No. 1071) Clear, pale wasabi green.
Formidable, clean, wasabi, horseradish nose.
The promised wasabi flavoured palate also has the rhizome’s heat, though not overpoweringly so.
Long, not entirely pleasant finish with lingering bitter, rooty flavours. One for mixing in Bloody Marys rather that sipping.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
