Tokyo - Shochu to bring back to the U.S.

ASiteSeer | Nov 13, 201410:27 PM     14

I would like to bring a few bottles of shochu back from Tokyo, to include in gift sets I will put together and maybe one to keep. I am looking for highly rated or very good ones that are probably around $50 USD or under. I myself have never tried shochu, as far as I can remember. Brands or types which are not currently available in the U.S., or even outside of Japan, would be ideal.

If anyone has suggestions or knows of blogs or websites with more information to direct me to, that would be terrific. I will probably visit some satellite stores to look for shochu, too. I usually don't bring back alcohol from trips, I'm guessing I will need to pack it in my check in. Maybe buy some bubble packs, too.

Thanks in advance.
