The sake ginjo yeast "Kyokai No. 9", which is now commonly used, was developed in Kumamoto. Tropical Kyushu is a shochu area, but it is said that Zuiyou, which was founded as "Let's make the first sake in Kumamoto," was the prelude to the large number of sake breweries in Kumamoto. Shochu, sake, and red sake are all brewed rooted in the climate of Kumamoto.
