IICHIKO factory in HITA
I visited to a factory of the shochu “IICHIKO” ,is well known as a clear liquor from buckwheat, to see a manufacturing process. There are a tons of mature shochu in casks. Shouchu is Japan’s other indigenous alcoholic
beverage, but unlike sake, shochu is distilled. It is also made from one of several raw materials. The alcoholic content is usually 25%, although sometimes it can be as high as 42% or more.
