Kaneyama old awamori (made in 1967) and Ryukyu Kata-zome wrapping cloth

Awamori is an alcoholic beverage indigenous to and unique to Okinawa, Japan. It is made from rice, and is not a direct product of brewing (like sake) but of distillation (like shochu). Awamori is typically 60 proof, although "export" brands (including brands shipped to mainland Japan) are increasingly 50 proof. Awamori is aged to improve its flavor and mellowness. Some brands of awamori (notably hanazake) are 120 proof and will catch fire.
