kurayoshi japanese whiskys

Kurayoshi Malt Whisky is made at the Matsui Shuzou production facility in the Tottori Prefecture, northwest of Kyoto, which was founded in 1910. In addition to whisky, Matsui Shuzou also brews sake and distills shochu, a spirit made from rice, barley, sweet potato, or other starchy ingredients inoculated with koji, the same mold used in sake production.

According to Caskers, Kurayoshi Pure Malt is made by combining sourced malt whisky from Scotland with Japanese malt whisky, then maturing and proofing the final blend in Japan.
