Rated "Best 100 Waters" in Japan
Rishiri is a volcanic island created some 900,000 years ago. A "sweet" tasting water, rich in minerals, slowly rises through this old volcanic rock, after the rain and melting snows have spent years locked beneath the lava. The refined complexity of Rishiri's waters have continuously been recognized within Japan as one of the Top 100 water sources.
Winds from the Sea of Japan
Rishiri Island lies at the most northern part of the Japan Sea. Our whisky will be aged by the salty winds from the Sea of Japan as they come over the cliffs where our distillery is perched.
Our Flavour-led Expression
Our first, un-aged expression. A very clean mouthfeel. Slightly peated. Described as sweet, with a very interesting Finish.
The heavy salt winds have already infused Rishiri's spirit into our Kamui Genshu. May our spirit strengthen yours.
