Haku Vodka Dinner Pairing Menu

While Vodka may not have the deep nuances of a Whisky there is certainly an identity and presence of ingredients, elements of pear and citrus brought together by notes of pepper.

Due to the slightly mellow nature of Vodka, any accompanying dish can really afford to offer big and bold flavours.

Haku Vodka from the House of Suntory is best served neat or frozen with sushi, sashimi as the official food pairing. Also perfect served frozen with a snack pairing.

Taste Profile
Clean, crisp, soft.

Pairing Rationale
With the bright acidity of soda, Haku will provide a cleansing contrast to the varied rich flavours in this dish, whilst gently enhancing the sweet, umami of rice and sesame elements.

Beef bone broth, white miso, silken tofu and bok choy.

Smoked salmon, maki rolls, wasabi toasted black sesame, pickled ginger, rice wine vinegar, soy dipper.
