Sweet Potato Shochu 'Imo', SG Shochu (750 ml)

Sweet potato shochu produced in the Kagoshima Prefecture of Japan by Satsuma Shuzo in collaboration with SG Shochu. Distilled from Sweet Potatoes; a blend of Koganesengan and Eimurasaki varieties. Koganesengan sweet potatoes, a classic variety used in shochu production, lend structure while Eimurasaki, a rare, purple sweet potato, provides distinctive aromatics. Locally grown sweet potatoes are transferred immediately to the distillery upon harvest. Saccharification is done with black koji (propagated on rice). Distilled once on a pot still. Rested in enamel before bottling.
