About the distillery : Located in the most upstream part of the Kuma Shochu distilleries, the Ohishi distillery uses the purest water. Thanks to the wide seasonal temperature variations, the shochu is produced using high-quality rice grown in the distillery's own rice fields. This distillery has the Kuma Shochu appellation, as it is the closest to the source of the Kuma-Gawa river torrent. The region's well-marked seasons make it the ideal place to grow rice. Today, the Ohishi distillery produces over 250,000 litres of shochu a year. Some of the shochu is aged in brandy and sherry casks. This blend produces a unique balance of aromas and flavours. Ohishi broke new ground in the early 1970s, when the distillery began ageing its shochu in oak barrels. It also innovated by using barrels from the Ariake cooperage when it was founded in 1976.
