Hakuyou (White Sun)
White Sun gives subtle, yet dignified aroma of refined rice & alcohol gravity which fades away into deep, earthy sweetness. Reflecting its aroma, the immediate flavor is that of razor-sharp dryness, which is slowly followed by deep, spicy warmth.

There's a shochu named Tantakatan where I'm from, Hokkaido. Made of purple laviate leaves and water of Mt. Taisetsu, it's unique and delicious shochu with fragrance that other shochu doesn't have.
Tantaka means flatfish in the language of Ainu, the native Japanese. This shochu was named after a fable of flatfish swimming up a river to bring back cure-all laviate leaves into the oncean in order to save other fish suffering from pollution.
The moutain where the fish got laviate is named Mt. Tantaka today and admired and cherished by people in Hokkaido.
