List of Shizuoka Shochu Distillers

Recently I was told by a friend/izakaya owner: “there are no shochu in Shizuoka Prefecture!”
Well, I found no less than 38! Actually 37 as one is sold, not brewed, by a sake Brewery. But I don’t include the many “private brands! brewed for individuals or places such as restaurants and hotels!
