Satsuma Shuzo, established in 1936, has been working on Shochu production sincerely with care. Especially, our flagship brand "Satsuma Shiranami" which was commercialized in 1955 has been loved not only in local Makurazaki city but also prefecture wide. In the late 1970s, we promoted to enjoy Shochu "Oyuwari", which is Shochu mixed with hot water, at the ratio of 6(Roku) part Shochu and 4(Yon) part hot water and it was called "Roku-Yon". This "Roku-Yon" serving style became a big trigger of the first Shochu trend. That was started in the 1980s, and it contributed to raising recognition of Sweet Potato Shochu nation-wide. Today, Satsuma Shiranami is well known all over Japan.
