Those who like Yuzu will love Kabosu: Kabosu is a Japanese citrus fruit, which looks like a lime, with which yuzu is related and which is between lemon and blood orange in taste. Yatsushika's Kabosu liqueur tastes very natural with only a little sweetness, and authentically captures the taste of this special citrus fruit. Also great as an ingredient for cocktails.
The kabosu fruit grows predominantly in Oita Prefecture, and this is also where the Kabuso liqueur by Yatsushika Shuzo is produced. The liqueur has a light green-golden colour and a pleasant citrus note on the nose, reminiscent of a mixture of lemon and lime. The slightly herbal base, on the other hand, makes you think a little of lemongrass. The world of citrus fruits in Asia is fascinating: Generally speaking, kabosu can be described as a fruit related to the yuzu, looking like a lime and tasting (in its natural state) somewhere between a lemon and a blood orange. The Kabuso liqueur tastes absolutely exciting and will make every liqueur and citrus fan melt away.
Fresh and yet mild with a fine acidity, this liqueur is great for cocktails and for drinking pure. In Japan it is enjoyed in a ratio of 1:3 mixed with soda or water (hot or cold).
