Suntory’s Strong Zero line reminds me that they’re the best, highest alcohol content, lowest sugar content chuuhai thanks to their newest limited edition flavor. I wasn’t expecting white grapes as a flavor, as it brings to mind sparkling wine. Additionally, Kirin just put out a chuuhai made from Chardonnay, so is Suntory threatened and copying Kirin’s drinks? The flavor is somewhat sweet and bitter, par for the course with the 8% alcohol and lack of sugar. The drink doesn’t taste like white or sparkling white wine because it’s made from vodka.
