○ From Kagoshima Sake Brewery official website
Sake has been made in Kagoshima for a long time, just like in other parts of Japan.
From around 1500 , the technique of distilling moromi to make shochu was introduced and settled in Satsuma.
In Edo, Akune shochu was priced higher than Nada sake. (Edo Shopping Single Guide 1824 Bunsei 7)
Kagoshima Sake Brewery Kurose Toji Tradition Brewery, located in Akune, on a slope overlooking the East China Sea, we strive every day to make shochu with the blessings of the sea breeze and the yeast of the brewery that has been living there for a long time.
