The “seaside” of the Seto Interisland Sea that Fukucho sits on is famous for lemons and limes; The female brewer, Miho Imada, uses a little white koji to produce citric acid to mimic these notes. Made through secondary fermentation with no dosage, so the cloudiness is from the yeast and sugar used, not nigori.
Fukucho is brewed in Hiroshima Prefecture in the Chugoku region.
