Origin & Speciality
About 500 year ago the Spirits were intoroduced from Siam to Okinawa, it is said, and then from Okinawa to Amami Island.
After going in for several better methods and techniques the present genuine Raw Sugar Shochu Spirits were produced.
When the amami Islands were restored to Japan from the USA in the year of Showa 28 - 1953, an established fact that the Spirits had been made from raw sugar, which has been Amami's main agricultural product, and been drunk, was valued, so that brewing from raw sugar as material was odmitted by liquar Tax Law only in Amami Islands.
