Thank you for coming to shochu (distilled spirit) brewery, the SENGETSU SHUZO today.
In its one-hundred-year history, my shochu brewery has earnestly walked the way of Kuma shochu since 1903.
Now we made modernized factory responsive to the changes of the times. However, the technical tradition has been handed down as to the essence of shochu making.
Our products are made from rice, malted rice, and water only. They are free from sweetener, aroma chemical, and other additives.
In the upcoming year, we aim to keep producing suavity and tasty shochu to your hand, and we do our best to make it richer and safer by day-to-day work.
I sincerely hope this marks the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship. SENGETSU SHUZO CO.,LTD

Regional contribution

Every May, the home-prepared Sengetsu festival is taken place by employees and volunteers to thank people from the local community. The festivals have been held more than 20 years. We donate the proceeds to regional schools. We also back up local tennis, volleyball, softball, and marathons events.
