Kagoshima released 2 different Whiskies in its lifetime. One of them was Kagoshima Mars, and the other Kagoshima Satsuma. Mars Whisky matures for 5 further years.

Only 3,018 bottles were released, making it a definite collectors item. Today Kagoshima Whisky can be found in the Shinshu Distillery, where the remaining stock is bottled and stored.
