In covering shochu news we at Shochu Distilled take care to pay special attention to the American shochu distillers. Potentially the most famous amongst these is Haamonii Smooth. Haamonii Smooth is based in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco California. They are best known for their Regular and lemon infused shochu.
Recently I made efforts to review their shochu, but came across some unexpected roadblocks. Their websites http://haamoniismooth.com and http://shareharmony.com both now redirect to BlueHost’s default page. In looking at their Facebook page it looks like the last post on what was a very active Facebook page was on September 22 of 2012. In speaking with fellow blogger EveryDayDrinker, they seem to not know of Haamonii’s recent whereabouts either. The one positive bit of news is that their shochu is still available at D & M Liquors, which is also based in Pacific Heights. So the question is, does anyone know what happened to Haamonii Shochu?
