The secret of Hi-Sour’s superb taste which made it everyone’s favorite for many years
Non-sweetened, light and strong carbonation! Achieving a “sophisticated taste!”
Hi-Sour has been made non-sweetened and light so that it can be mixed with alcohol. A carbonated drink for highlighting the alcohol taste. There are various flavors such those containing lemon juice or hops. It goes well with any dish.
We use only approx. 30% of the delicious part of the lemons produced in Sicily, Italy using the luxurious “extraction from the center” method.
We use safety-guaranteed lemons with established “traceability (able to trace right back to the farm),” harvested in the world’s renowned lemon-growing district, Sicily, Italy. Extraction from such lemons is done using a unique and specialized “extraction right from the center” method, using only approx. 30% of the lemons from the “first extraction.” Because the juice is only extracted from the very best part of the pulp, there is no bitterness or harshness of the rind, and is top quality with only the aroma of the lemon pulp itself. We pride ourselves in our masterpiece using lemons【extracted from the center】.
Superb mildness and taste! Actually, wine is used as the secret ingredient.
Hi-Sour, which is a drink mixer, uses wine as the secret ingredient. In various dishes, secret ingredients are used to enhance the flavor of the main ingredient. Hi-Sour, of course, is not alcohol but a soft drink (※), so the alcohol contained as the secret ingredient is under 0.2%.
(※) According to Japanese law, soft drinks refer to beverages which do not contain any alcohol or which contain small traces of alcohol (under 1 degree which is not considered to be alcoholic).
Home drinking party tonight! It would be fun to create your own recipe!
