× Whiskey: Yamaga Distillery (whiskey)

Sparking the popularity of Japanese whiskey in recent years, and recognized worldwide for its high quality, this distillery specializing in malt whiskey opened in 2021 with technical support from Kagoshima Prefecture’s Honbo Sake Brewery. Utilizing the benefits of Yamaga’s rich natural climate, we are pursuing a beautiful, gorgeous flavor and noble depth. It is a remarkable up-and-coming distillery that aspires to create single malt that will captivate people around the world.
