I was reading in the paper yesterday about a drink in Japan, shochu I think, that is made from fermented and distilled sweet potatoes to around 50 proof. Reading between the lines of the article it sounded like it's fermented in open containers with some of the microbes in the distillery contributing to the fermentation, much like a lambic or geuze (sp?). Sounded kind of interesting...apparently it's more popular now in Japan than sake.
