The kogane-sengan sweet potato was created in 1966 and became shōchū’s main ingredient. These are versatile yellowish-white sweet potatoes with a great taste and high starch content widely used for many different purposes other than making shōchū. In Kagoshima Prefecture, almost half of the cultivated sweet potatoes are kogane-sengan.
