There is a tree left by our predecessors after the war. We will make the most of this tree!” Efforts to produce shochu began 20 years ago, and the utilization of the National Strategic Special Zone enabled brewing within the village. Small-scale production of single-distillation shochu has become possible, and the dream of making sake using the resources of Hinokihara has come true. Regarding sake brewing, the chief brewer (our company representative) who learned how to make shochu in Aogashima, which is famous for shochu, and a precision electronic measuring instrument engineer worked from the planning and design of the manufacturing machine.
