HIGASHUZO - OKINAWA PREFECTURE

The Higa Shuzo distillery was founded at the end of the Second World War, after the terrible ordeal of the Great Pacific War. Okinawa was literally reduced to ashes. The inhabitants of the prefecture, who had survived the violent fighting, were short of everything and alcohol was a luxury product that was hard to come by. Tacorakichi Higa, the founder, left his job as a teacher and devoted himself to the production of awamori with the philosophy of "producing safe and reliable awamori", at a time when the inhabitants of the islands were consuming drinks that were dangerous to their health. In 1948, he obtained his brewing licence from the US civilian government and marketed his first awamori, Marutaka, named after his home town. Many years later, in 1980, the main "Zanpa" brand was born. The Zanpa series is appreciated not only by the local Okinawan population, but throughout Japan.
