Japanese single malt elegance.

Ohishi is a hidden Japanese gem nestled in the mountainous countryside, along with the banks of the Kuma River, one of Japan’s fastest flowing rivers, also known for its pristine water quality. The family-run operation was established in 1872.

It may come as no surprise that Ohishi are known first and foremost for their Sake & Shochu, but they also craft one hell of a rice Whisky. Ohishi swaps barley for rice to craft their single malts, and they grow a unique strain of rice for production called “gohyakumanishi” (5 million stones) and use koi to cultivate their crop.

The Whisky is distilled in traditional Japanese stainless steel pot stills before getting some beauty rest in ex-sherry and brandy casks, in the mountainous Japanese countryside. Being aged at such high altitudes yields an elegant Sherry symphony.

This Ohishi Sherry Cask is a blend of casks anywhere from 3 to 25 years old. Expect notes of dried tropical fruit, toasted hazelnut, golden raisins, and sweet marzipan. It’s quite the Japanese sensation too, earning itself “92 Excellent, Highly Recommended” from the Beverage Tasting Institute in 2017, and “92 Points, Excellent, Highly Recommended” for the Japanese Whisky category at the USC Awards.

In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
