Discover the Whiskies of the World –
Togouchi Japanese Blended Whisky
and Yushan Whisky

 
Togouchi Whisky
Chugoku Jozo is a Japanese brewery located near Hiroshima. It has been making liqueurs, sake, and the traditional Japanese spirit shochu since 1918. For decades, Chugoku Jozo has developed a knack for making some of the most beautiful spirits in the world. But it wasn't until 1990 that the brewery decided to dabble with whisky by creating its Togouchi line. The master blender carefully chose the distillates (malt and grain) which would be sent to Japan, grown, and blended in the Japanese fashion. This line is the epitome of refinement and precision, celebrating two of Earth's most precious assets: barley and water.

The whiskies of the Togouchi line are perfect examples of the exquisite art of Japanese blending. Aged in a 361-meter-long tunnel, these Japanese whiskies benefit from outstanding maturation conditions that give rise to balanced and refined expressions.

Yushan Whisky
Thrust into the spotlight in 2015 with Yushan Blended Malt and in 2018 with Yushan Signature, the Taiwanese label Yushan was an overnight success. Boasting a thought-provoking name (Yushan is the highest mountain in Taiwan) and a modern and minimalist package, this line of whiskies is simply irresistible.

Sitting at 3,000 meters above sea level, the Nantou Distillery benefits from an outstanding subtropical climate that is perfect for aging these whiskies.

Based in Hiroshima, Chugoku Jozo has been producing sake since 1918. In recent years the company created a world blended whisky range named Togouchi. Looking to add transparency to their company, in 2018 they started making their own single malt whisky under the Sakurao distillery." Learn More »»
