where to find shochu?

Couple months ago I fell deep in fascination with shochu (distilled spirit from anything from barley to sweet potatoes to soba) in some nameless Japanese hole-in-the-wall in New York. I've never seen it poured anywhere in Boston until I discovered the "Shochu White Cranberry" (Shochu Japanese Spirit, Squeezed Lime, White Cranberry) at the Franklin Cafe in South End last night. Amazing.

Any recommendations on where else to sip this stuff? Either in Asian dives or high-end yuppie bars, it doesn't matter. Just curious where it may have been spotted in the wild.
