A new Shochu is born: “Chittorattsu”

A new shochu is born! Well, it will be put on sale from May 10th!
It is a very “limited edition” for its first year: only 500 cc 800 bottles!
Its name “Chittorattsu” means “just a little” i Shizuoka patois.
It was ordered by a group of shochu lovers, including farmers and liquor shops.
Sugii Brewery/Distilliery in Fujieda City used “Gansho” satsuma potatoes grown around Mishima City, natural water from the area and yeast produced in Shizuoka Prefecture.
The label was drawn by a Mishima lady artist as this shochu was particularly designed for ladies.
Alcohol contents are 25.5 degrees.
At 1,500 yen for a 500 cc bottle, it is a bit pricey, but that is why you pay for quality and elegance!
