Sasanokawa Shuzo is a spirits company founded in 1765, based in Koriyama on the main island of Honshu.

Mainly active in the field of traditional Japanese beverages such as sake and shochu, the company has been producing "Ji-Whisky" since 1946, a term that encompasses all Japanese whiskies produced by specialists in traditional Japanese spirits who sometimes engage in whisky production ranging from 100% Japanese production to collaboration with foreign distilleries.

Since the founding of the Asaka distillery in 2015, Sasanokawa has been committed to producing whiskies that are distilled, aged and blended in Japan, as evidenced by the company's first blend, Yamazakura The First single malt released in 2020.
