Yanagita Distillery

Located in the southern Japanese prefecture of Miyazaki known for some of the best shochu making in the country, Yanagita Distillery has been distilling since 1902. As a former engineer, fifth generation president Tadashi Yanagita brings a sense of precision and elegance to his family’s storied shochu distillery. They specialize in barley shochu in all its variations and subtleties, from the light, clean and buttery style they originated to large flavored brews bursting with roasty and nutty flavors, to delicate high proof barley shochu whose aging in Mizunara oak gives it a texture and aroma to rival the finest whiskies.
