The West is having a love affair with Asian spirits. Whether it’s Shochu or Baijiu, the markets cannot get enough of the drinks – and they’re the talk of the industry. Host David Kermode explores the phenomenon with Antony Moss DipWSET MW, Qualifications Director at the WSET.

He’s also joined by Hannah Lanfear, spirits educator and founder of The Mixing Class and Shuro Kawano, PR Section Manager at Hamada Syuzou Distillery. They explain exactly how the ingredients needed to craft the spirits are sourced, and how they relate to the cultures they come from.
