Founded in 1910, Matsui Shuzou Distillery sits just northwest of Kyoto, facing the Sea of Japan in the Tottori Prefecture. This distillery is directly within sight of Mount Daisen — a volcanic peak rising more than a mile above the surrounding fertile plains. This volcanic environment has a spring water source used to distill their Sake, Shōchū, and Whisky and bring it to proof. This distinctive water has filtered through the volcanic stone for eons — resulting in an incredibly pure, distinctive soft mineral composition.

The Matsui Shuzou Distillery produces some highly regarded whiskies— including some single malts under the Kurayoshi brand as well as five-grain whiskies under their Tottori label. Matsui The Peated is a unique Japanese peated single malt distilled in the modern Kurayoshi Distillery owned by Matsui. Bottled at 48% ABV, this peated single malt can compete with the best single malts from Islay, awarded 87 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge, receiving a Strong Recommendation.
