Ohishi Distillery was founded in 1872 in Southwest Japan near the source of the Kuma River. Ohishi whiskies are distilled from malted and unmalted rice in stainless steel before being aged primarily in brandy and sherry casks with many expressions finished in port, Islay Scotch, or Sakura casks.
Oka Kura is produced at the legendary Tsutsumi Distillery in the Kumamoto Prefecture in Kyushu, Japan, with the intent to craft distinctly Japanese spirits and liqueurs from local shochu, Junmai sake, and hyper regional botanicals. Each expression is a gateway to Japanese flavors and traditions.
Tsutsumi Distillery has been producing traditional shochu for 141 years and is 1 of only 28 distilleries certified by the WTO as a Kuma Shochu producer. Using 100% rice and crystal-clear water from Kuma River, Tsutsumi is respected for its ability to bridge the gap between tradition and innovation.
