By the way, what is shochu (焼酎)...?

pixta_10070364_S
Shochu is a Japanese distilled spirit beverage which contains about 25 to almost up to around 40% of alcohol. Not like sake, which is a brewed alcohol made from only rice, shochu is made from many kinds of ingredients such as Japanese sweet potatoes, barley, rice, and buckwheat.

Its unique taste with a medium level of alcohol volume usually around 25% has been loved by Japanese drunkards for decades!

Shochu is originally made in the Kyushu region, but nowadays it is produced in locations throughout Japan.

You can enjoy shochu just like whiskeys and any other kinds of spirit, for instance, on the rock, water split, soda split, and even make your own Japanese cocktails just by adding some Japanese teas! So many ways so EASY!

iichiko brand

https://www.iichiko.co.jp/
iichiko is a name for shochu produced by Sanwashurui (三和酒類). Sanwashurui used to be a sake brewer, but from the late 60s, they started producing shochu beverages as their sub-product. Sanwashurui had succeeded by making the original kind of shochu iichiko which has less smell compared to the relevant common shochu at that time.

The unique name "iichiko" is a word which means "Sure why not!" in Oita dialect.
