Shochu is a white alcohol resembling vodka Titrant between 20 and 45 °, and are distilled from different ingredients such as sweet potato, rice, barley or brown sugar. It is extremely popular in Japan, and people drinks it both "Straight" and "On the rocks "or in cocktail (most famously with fresh grapefruit juice).

It seems that shochu has arrived from Ryu-Kyu Islands (Okinawa), located in the South-East Asia, who continue to distill a local variant (Awamori) using long rice base, while generally the rice grown in Japan is a special short rice type (Japonica). A little further north of Okinawa, Kyushu has constituted the land of origin for Japanese shochu, but they have started to try to distill sweet potatoes, a crop emblematic of the region in Japan, and soon after expand to the use of many other different ingredients for the making of special shochu.

Today there are so many shochu types that are made of various cereals or plants based, such as buckwheat, shiso, barley, rice, and potatoes sweet.
