About Kujira Ryukyu 8 Year Old Whisky

This Kujira Ryukyu Whisky is a single grain spirit that is malted, fermented, and distilled right there at the Shinzato distillery. It's crafted with Indica rice and Okinawa's black kōji ― a type of mold that is used to ferment shōchū and awamori. The whisky then spends 8 years in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, resulting in a delicious spirit with oak, vanilla, dried fruit, licorice, and spice notes.

The Okinawa Prefecture is a tropical archipelago that was known as the Kingdom of Ryukyu from the 15th to the 19th century. It's there that the historical Shinzato Shuzo distillery lies. Founded in 1846, it's said to be the oldest distillery in Okinawa. Traditionally, Shinzato Shuzo are masters of vintage awamori (distilled rice spirit) and plum liqueurs. Today, the distilling is spearheaded by 7th generation distiller Naoya Shinzato, a young and passionate Master Blender who is taking traditional craftsmanship to a new level.

About Japanese Whisky

Although maybe not be the first Spirit you would think of when Japan is mentioned; the Japanese make one of the best types of whisky in the world. It’s heavily influenced by scotch but with smoother and delicate notes.

The history of the Japanese whisky is not even a century old, but in this short time, the Japanese blended and single malts have taken over the world by storm and can easily go against their whisk(e)y counterparts from across the globe.
