The distillery used hybrid stills until 2006, which were discontinuous stills, with pot stills on the bottom and a short column on top.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
The distillery receives 1 million visitors per year, 30% of which are foreign tourists.
The King Car Group also works with coffee, they really emphasize the importance of grinding it, so they give the same importance to the grinding of barley in the Whisky distillery.

Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
