Distilled, aged and bottled in Japan, Kujira Whisky 20 Years Old is a creation of the Kumesen Syuzo distillery located in southern Japan in the tropical archipelago of Okinawa formerly called the Ryukyu Kingdom. The originality of this single grain is that it is made from 100% long indica rice fermented with yeasts such as whisky and black Koji, a variety unique to the Okinawa islands, and distilled in traditional pot stills according to the manufacturing method inherited from the traditional spirit of the region, the awamori.
Both whisky and awamori, rice single grains are grouped under the name Ryukyu whiskies and represent an enriching blend of aging know-how. Kujira Whisky is a blend of single grains aged for 20 years in Bourbon barrels only in a subtropical climate whose influence is expressed through a deep and complex tasting profile.
This complexity is fully expressed on the nose with fruity notes of plum, oaky notes and the greediness of vanilla notes. During tasting, a multitude of fruity aromas of dried fruits enrich its aromatic palette up to the rather spicy finish with liquorice and vanilla notes.
The history of Ryukyu whiskies began in 1989 under the impetus of the Kumesen Syuzo distillery founded in 1952 and joined by the dean of distilleries in the region Shinzato Shuzo founded in 1846, with the desire to create a spirit combining the know-how of rice distillation with the tradition of whisky with aging in oak barrels instead of earthenware jars, the kame, used for Awamori.
