We call it the God of Japanese Rice Whisky.
The Kumesen Distillery — Kumesen Syuzo — was founded in Okinawa, Japan, in 1952. Their first product was Awamori — a Shochu beverage distilled from special Indica rice and served at 30-40% ABV. Then in 1989 they began to age their Awamori in oak casks, creating a rice-based Whiskey. The products are exceptionally popular in the Japanese islands and the rich flavors of their signature Spirits are building a global fan base.
INARI was the god of rice in Japanese mythology and INARI is a fitting name for this fantastic KUJIRA Ryukyu Whisky. Pretty obvious as to why: it was distilled from 100% Indica rice and mashed with “black koji”, which is a special type of koji that can only be found in Okinawa. After aging in white oak casks, only the finest casks are hand-picked to deliver the ideal balance of delicate oak notes, figs, nuts, and butterscotch on the palate. A beautifully layered Whisky that brings you joy after each sip.
