Tour of Japan, Part 1: Ohishi Distillery

Ohishi Distillery was founded in 1872, located in the Southwest of Japan, in a beautifully mountainous and scenic countryside.  Ohishi sits near the tiny village of Mizukami, and is the closest distillery to the source of the Kuma River, one of the fastest flowing rivers in all of Japan, renowned and prized for its superior water quality.  Ohishi has been a family business for five generations, primarily known for its sake & shochu production. It is distilled entirely from rice and aged in either Brandy or Sherry Casks.
