Mizu is made at the Munemasa Shuzo Co. distillery in Arita, Japan. Established in 1985, it's rooted in a rich heritage of artisanship as the Munemasa family opened a small sake brewery over 120 years ago in Hiroshima, but due to WWII, it had to close. Today, the distillery is located in the Saga prefecture in the small town of Arita, the birthplace of Japanese porcelain, where pristine waters and rich farmland provide ideal conditions for distilling. Munemasa Shuzo is closely intertwined with local flavors, harvests and soft waters. "Creating harmony between the land, farmer and distillery", all their ingredients are sourced from nearby farms and Master Distiller (toji) Hirofumi Okoba cultivates close relationships with local farmers.

Producing handcrafted, single distilled traditional Japanese shochu, their Mizu Shochu is more concentrated than the average modern schochu. Bottled at 70 proof, this higher concentration pays homage to old styles of shochu and brings out the spirit's subtle complexities.

On the east of Arita, there are beautiful lemongrass fields that have become a source of local pride. Inspired by this pristine nature, this Mizu Lemongrass Shochu is handcrafted and single distilled from a mash of local rice, freshly harvested organic lemongrass and the pure waters of Black Hair Mountain. Master Distillers Shinji Wasa and Hirofumi Okoba decided to put an innovative twist on traditional shochu and introduce lemongrass for the very first time for an even silkier spirit. The lemongrass is added to the rice-based mash only 3 days before distillation – just in time for the oils to blend with local rice.

Mizu Lemongrass Shochu was awarded 92 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
