“Shochu (Japanese spelling), Awamori (Okinawan) or Soju (Korean spelling) is distilled alcoholic beverage very popular in Japan, Okinawa, and Korea. It is not sake (rice wine) and recommend sake, vodka or whiskey _not be_ used because shochu tastes totally different from those. In Japan Chu Hai can be purchased in cans and though not very good, they are hugely popular there among younger generation. Most younger people in Japan prefer wine or chuhai and not sake. This one is very basic Chu Hai.”
