These familiar citrus fruits are Ehime prefecture’s special products!
They’re filled with vitamin C and are a fruit that have beneficial qualities for women.
Although you can eat them as they are, a multitude of special products making use of the rich ripened fruit have been developed.
At “Setouchi Shunsaikan”, a showroom for Kagawa and Ehime prefecture goods, we received some recommendations with the key word ‘citrus’.
First off is this iyokan syrup.
It is a product that utilizes both fresh and concentrated iyokan juice.
Actually, the syrup was originally developed as a mixer for Suntory’s Kaku Highball. If you sample the syrup by itself, the bittersweet taste of citrus and the unique bitterness of iyokan are still present.
It’s a natural flavor that is not too sweet. I think it can be used not only for highballs but also in cooking and when making sweets.
Without further delay, here’s how to make an iyokan highball using the syrup.
Suntory Whisky Kakubin 30 ml
15ml Iyokan Syrup 15 ml
Soda water (100 ml)
1. Fill a glass with ice.
2. Pour in the kakubin and syrup, and fill the glass with soda water.
3. Stir lightly
Whisky and citrus fruit? They actually go very well together!
Adding the fresh flavor and slight sweetness of citrus makes it into an easy-to-drink cocktail!
Even those who don’t like the distinctive flavor of whisky might be able to drink this without any problems.
We recommend using the syrup with shaved ice, as well. There is a lot of syrup in the 560-ml bottle, so it makes you want to try out various combinations.
Next up is this:
It is… a mandarin?
It is in fact a hand towel! As it is wrapped in a mandarin net, I mistook it for a real one for a moment.
When you spread the towel out, you can see the mandarin stem sitting in the middle.
It makes for a good present, as well. Slipping it in a fruit basket when giving it as a present is a cute idea!
In addition to these products there are plenty of other special products that we have not yet introduced.
Go have a look!
