Miyashita Distillery

Founded in 2012 by Miyashita Shuzo, Miyashita Distillery, also known as Okayama Distillery, was established in the west of Honshu in the north of Shikoku Island.

Miyashita Shuzo is the story of two brothers, Kamezo and Motosaburo Miyashita, who, at an early age, find themselves in the care of a relative following the sudden death of their beloved father. Their relative is at that time the manager of a famous brewery in Japan. They then found themselves immersed in the heart of Japanese know-how, particularly in the making of Sake.

Over the years, they became interested in the world of sake, perfecting their skills and enriching their creativity to realize their dream of founding their own brewery. In 1915, the Miyashita Sake Brewery was founded and a few decades later, it became a distillery.

Proud of its multiple skills, the distillery distinguishes itself by producing different types of alcoholic beverages, as varied as complementary. Following this philosophy of diversity, the Miyashita distillery naturally turned to the production of Japanese whiskies.

In 2011, they unveiled their first bottling: Okayama Single Malt. Building on this experience, the Miyashita team perfected their skills and presented a second whisky, the Okayama Triple Cask, born from a blend of single malts aged in bourbon, sherry and mizunara casks.

With the importation of a German still in 2015, the year of the distillery's 100th anniversary, Miyashita has state of the art tools to produce whisky up to the standards of the greatest Houses.
