Toyonaga Distilling Company

Kumamoto Prefecture


The Hitoyoshi plateau in Kumamoto Prefecture, blessed with ideal conditions for rice cultivation, has been a shochu centre for over five hundred years. Here, in the town of Yunomae near the headwaters of the Kuma River, Shiro Toyonaga and his fellow workers produce a rice shochu like no other, gently fragrant, elegantly smooth and with a sweet meadowland flavour reminiscent of Speyside single malts. Uses 100% organic rice.
