Learning About Shochu:
The relationship between shochu and hangovers

Shochu is well known for not causing many hangovers, and this is one of the reasons why shochu has become so popular in Japan. Hangovers are caused by an overabundance of alcohol that the body cannot process. The distilling eliminates many of the impurities and harmful components so that consuming reasonable amounts of shochu will not cause one to suffer a hangover. Just remember not to drink too much.
