Founded in 1823, Fukano Distillery is situated in Hitoyoshi City, of the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Nestled in the Kyushu mountains, Hitoyoshi is renown for its pure water and unadulterated nature. Most known for producing shōchū —a traditional Japanese spirit made from rice— Hitoyoshi is in its fifth generation of Fukano’s, now run by Shigeruriku Fukano. Fukano whisky is distilled from a combination of both malted and un-malted rice and passed through stainless steel still. Rice doesn’t require copper stills during production, due to its sulfur-free nature. It is a clean distillate. Distilled to a low proof, the resultant spirit, technically a shochu is then transferred to new charred oak barrels and matured in a warehouse These limited-run whiskies are rare, with only a few casks bottled each year.
