The tale of Kiyosato Shochu - Pride of the townspeople passed down through generations
Kiyosato in Hokkaido is the only domestic government agency with a brewing license. The "Potato Shochu Hokkaido Kiyosato" made from potatoes from Kiyosato is a traditional and famous drink loved by many.
Shochu brewing began in the 1970s to give added value to the left over potatoes. The late Shoki Nagaya began selling the Shochu in 1979. It was renewed in 2014 as the "Hokkaido Kiyosato" brand.
"There were people who started the brewing, protected the flavor regardless of the trend, and suggested we make matured liquor by storing the unprocessed Shochu in barrels… Each era had its key person and they all did something for the next generation. Kiyosato Shochu is and always will be a proud brand nurtured by the towns people." (Head of Kiyosato, Masaaki Kushibiki).
