Tasting Notes: Satsuma Shiranami, which is one of the most popular Imo Shochu brands in Japan, is made with 100% carefully selected top-grade Kogane Sengan sweet potato from South Kagoshima. It has the natural sweetness of that sweet potato, with a full body and aroma.

Believing that good shochu, like a good harvest, is nothing less than a gift from the earth, Nishi Shuzo only uses potatoes and rice grown by local farmers. Additionally the brewery itself is surrounded by mountains, and thus they are blessed with good water.
