Sweet potato shochu “Shigetsukatsu”
Authentic shochu produced by being thoroughly particular about “Niiza”
Sweet potatoes used were all Beni-azuma cultivated in Niiza City and the water used is 100% the water from a deep well in Niiza City. The yeast used is collected from rambling roses, making this shochu graceful and elegant with slight sweetness.
The label was hand-written by the late master Genryo Nonomura who was the 24th head of priest at Heirin Zen temple, and “Shigetu” means “Shigetu-an,” which is the name of the room of master Genyo Nonomura. “Katsu” means the word “Kaatsu!” which is often used in Zen Buddhism. It is the word to drive away and remove every thought and give encouragement. Saying the word is a way of wishing one’s bright and great future by eliminating suffering and confusion.
Cultivation of sweet potatoes for the product is supported by local farms, and students at Jumonji University in the City help with the shortage of ingredients to support the local economy. The way they are being very specific about Niiza makes this product very fitting for Niiza brand.
