Since 1872 Ohishi Distillery has been utilizing the terroir and traditions of the remote village located in Kumamoto prefecture in Kyushu, Japan’s southernmost island. A quiet village of fewer than 3000 people, Mizukami’s farms grow the many strains of rice used in the production of Ohishi, 30% of which come directly from the Ohishi family farm.

Mochi, Hinohikari, Gohyakumangoku and Yamadanishiki are refined rice strains used in Ohishi whisky. The water is supplied by the Kuma River. The union of these varietals lends to an exceptional 18-day fermentation process that brings an elegant flavor and aroma to the finished product.


Distilled from malted and unmalted rice fermented with the groundwater of the Kuma Riverbed in Hitoyoshi, Japan.

Brand Tasting Notes: Flavors of dark, dried fruits with notes of cinnamon and tobacco.
