About the distillery : Yanagita is the oldest distillery in Miyakonojo. It was founded in 1902 and is located on the outskirts of Miyazaki. In 2005, the distillery had already made a name for itself by signing agreements with committed local producers for the cultivation of traditional barley (the 'Miyazaki Hadaka' variety, which has all but disappeared from the region, for example) or for sweet potatoes of the 'kogane sengan' variety, which are left to mature to bring out their full flavour. But it was on 6 April 2009 that the distillery was transformed and restructured, with everything being put in place to streamline production.
About the brand : The 3S brand (Super Shochu Spirits) offers a collection of premium shochu. It works with a selection of distillers (including the Yanagita distillery), all of whom are true craftsmen of shochu production. Heirs to the knowledge and philosophy of a prestigious lineage before them, they are constantly developing and honing their skills to challenge the next generation. Together with the Yanagita distillery, 3S has bottled Mizunara shochu 2019 under its own label.
