Kurayoshi the foothills of Mt. Daisen, here has a fine water that is indispensable for whisky distilling. Kurayoshi, called that “Life is good” is the origin of the word, but the annual temperature range in the Sea of Japan side is large, and the aging of whisky also advances quickly compared to the actual situation like Islay Island.
It is no exaggeration to say that whiskey is made by barrel and the nature. Our distillery is not big, we have a small number of staff, however, we will continue to strive all the staff with the desire to deliver the best whisky.
Kurayoshi 8 Year Old Malt Whisky is aged in white oak ex-bourbon barrels for over eight years. This aging process creates a more refined whisky with a depth of character, removing any unpleasant flavors, it causes the whisky to develop a ripeness and complexity in flavor. This 8-year-old malt whisky is packed with refreshing notes of citrus, and a sweet, soft, vanilla nuttiness.
