The first shochu produced by Kirishima Shuzo’s founder, Kichisuke Enatsu, in 1916 was a black koji-based shochu, which marked the start of Kirishima Shuzo’s long history. Kuro Kirishima recreates the flavor of that first black koji-based shochu.
This shochu uses the purple Murasaki-Masari sweet potatoes, rich in polyphenols which react with the citric acid generated by the shochu koji to produce a bright red color that gives Aka Kirishima its name.
