Hamakomachi by Sugii Brewery

Hamakomachi by Sugii Brewery : Sugii Brewery in Fujieda City are always ready to answer requests for new shochu, whatever the risks and work involved.

This new shochu was announced on the Shizuoka Shinbun and other newspapers such as the Chunichi Shinbun when an Association for the Promotion of Hamakomachi Yam and its derived products visited the office of the Shizuoka Prefecture Governor to have him taste their latest creations.

As you can see on the above picture, the local farmers in the west of the Prefecture are growing the Hamakomachi Yam not only for shochu, but also for cakes and ice creams! It is especially rich in beta carotin vitamins, another reason for indulging!
