In late July, a group of five men and women in their 60s and 70s visited the brewery.
These visitors really love travelling to remote Islands. Some knew a lot about shochu and asked excellent questions like what the brewery did with the waste left over when making Shochu. They really liked how friendly the staff at the brewery were which they said was different from bigger brewery’s. After the tour we guided them to Shiotebana and Kiyaharu Park
The tour will also point out place on interest on Kuroshima for you to visit.
By the way, in answer to the question about the shouchu waste, it is used as fertilizer for plants.

In late June, two men in their twenties and thirties visited the brewery. We picked them up at Osato Port and bought them to the Shochu brewery. Since both of them were solo travellers, they had great conversations with the brewer who also likes to travel solo.
