Ohishi is a unique family-run distillery situated on the banks of the Kuma River -one Japan’s fastest flowing rivers, renowned for its superior water quality. Founded in 1872 the distillery sits in the Southwest of Japan, nestled in an idyllic mountainous countryside. They grow a distinct strain of rice at this majestic distillery called “gohyakumanishi” (5 million stones), using a unique organic style of cultivation that incorporates koi carp. Primarily known for their sake & shochu production, Ohishi also crafts one-of-a-kind whiskies, which are distilled in traditional Japanese stainless steel pot stills before being filled into ex-sherry and brandy casks. Ohishi is aged for extended periods of time in the high altitude warehouses, yielding a balanced sherry influence, effectively producing a spirit that resembles more of a Scotch than anything else. Ohishi Sherry Cask is a blend of casks ranging from 3 to 25 years old. The whisky’s signature, elegant profile is further enhanced by notes of dried tropical fruit, toasted hazelnut, golden raisins, and sweet marzipan. This special sherried expression also received “92 Excellent, Highly Recommended” from the Beverage Tasting Institute in 2017, and “92 Points, Excellent, Highly Recommended” for the Japanese Whisky category at the USC Awards.
