The Sasanokawa Shuzo distillery is one of the oldest in all of Japan: it was founded in 1765 for the production of Saké and Shochu. The former is a rice wine/distillate, the latter is another typical drink of Japan which, depending on the area, is produced either with barley, sweet potatoes, sesame, wheat or cane sugar. As early as the end of the 1800s, it began to produce whisky, although the real development took place around the 1940s, based on the harmonious and soft style of Scotland.

Production method

The production of blended whiskeys aims at obtaining harmonious and balanced products through the skilful mixing of single malt, whiskey obtained from the distillation of a single type of malted barley, and grain whiskey, or whiskey from various types of unmalted cereals. The result is distillates that tend to have less character and less decisive gustatory notes, but nonetheless endowed with great harmony, aromas and pleasantness.
