About The Distillery
This distillery is known to use mainly Scottish whisky and whisky from other parts of the world to blend the bottles they produce. The distillery also known as the Kurayoshi Distillery was Founded in 1910 and is located in the Tottori Prefecture, Northwest of Kyoto and Northeast of Hiroshima, on the shore of the Sea of Japan.
Matsui Shuzo is known in Japan as both a sake brewery and shochu distillery. While the juice in Kurayoshi is 100% malted barley, the spirits themselves have been sourced from distilleries around Scotland before making their journey to Japan, where they are blended with Japanese-distilled malted barley then aged for 3 years to 18 years). The whisky is then watered down with the famously soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture. All expressions of Kurayoshi are non-chill filtered, with no caramel added, and over 40% ABV.
