Notes from the Maker:

"The heart of Kikori Whiskey is the flavorful, local rice which has been cultivated in southern Japan for over 2000 years. The nutrient rich, volcanic soil of Kyushu Island is the ideal environment to grow this nutritious and flavorful rice. Japanese rice is widely considered to be among the finest in the world, and has been chosen for its distinctive and aromatic profile.

If rice is the heart of Kikori, then water is its soul. Recharged by the surrounding mountains and rainforests and filtered through the porous volcanic earth of Kyushu Island, the pristine groundwater that runs under Kumamoto is pure and abundant. This extraordinarily pure mountain water creates the smooth drinkability and balanced flavor of Kikori.

Time is our most precious resource and the most important ingredient in Kikori. Pure water swirls and eddies through volcanic rock that took millions of years to form. Rice grows in the rich volcanic loam formed through eons of lava flow and ash deposits. Kikori is expertly distilled and then aged for over three years, absorbing the subtle notes of the oak barrels and evolving into the distinctive, smooth spirit that is Kikori Whiskey. Kikori is that unique spirit that can be equally enjoyed neat, over ice or blended into flavorful cocktails."
