Even non-Japanese non-drinkers have heard of sake but shochu, the distilled beverage made of barley or sweet potatoes (among other things), requires taking a deeper dive into Japanese drinking habits. If you want to go even deeper, one of the most common ways to have shochu is as the lemon sour cocktail that combines shochu with soda water and the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon. And this is what Kameyama Lemon Sour Candle brings to the table - literally!
A real glass, filled with bubbling soda - the work the craftsmen at Kameyama have done with the bubbles effect is nothing short of amazing! - and a slice of lemon that actually smells like a lemon make the Kameyama Lemon Sour Candle look and smell like the real thing, and transports you to an izakaya drink-and-eat joint in a Tokyo backstreet. And it will keep releasing its fresh, lemony fragrance for about 7 hours, long enough to have a few lemon sours of your own!
