If apparently driven by an impulse to try the purest potato shochu, you have to go to Kuroki Honten Brewery in Miyazaki and take “Bakudan Hanatare.”

Bakudan means bomb in Japanese and Hanatare does the pure drops which trickles from stills at the first stage of distillation. Naturally, it is purer and its alcohol content is almost higher than 60. So they need to add some water for adjusting the content.

Take a look at the alcohol content. It is 44 and tastes rich, deep and so much glamorous as Potato Shochu.

Well, let me also mention about Kuroki Honten Brewery here. They were established in 1885 and have tightly kept their faith which says “Using what is produced in the area makes the shochu that expresses the culture.” From old times, they have produced the ingredients collaborating with the local farmers. “Bakudan Hanatare” is made from Kogane Sengan; a kind of sweet potatoes. It is all produced within Miyazaki prefecture.

Just like a bomb, its flavor splendidly bursts inside your mouths. You had better drink bit by bit with hot water in my recommendation. However, any texts are not being more persuasive than your real drink, you know.
