The Kawasaki Distillery was located between Tokyo and Yokohama, in Kawasaki Prefecture. Kawasaki was founded by the Mercian Corporation as one of the smallest distilleries in Japan. They specialized in grain Whisky production.

Mercian became a part of Kirin Holdings in the 2000s. The distillery then closed like its sister distillery Karuizawa. Kawasaki grain Whiskies were made of 90% corn and 10% malted barley. The casks used for the Whiskies were refilled Sherry butts and Demerara Rum casks.
