Sasanokawa Shuzo’s sake- and shochu-making days dates back all the way to 1765. However, almost 200 years later, they decided to dive into the whisky making market in 1946.

Their quality was able to stand toe to toe with large rivals like Nikka and Suntory in the northeast region of Japan. Most importantly, Sasanokawa Shuzo were also the ones who famously helped Ichiro Akuto (Ichiro’s Malt / Hanyu Distillery) save his whisky stocks and allowing him to build the Ichiro’s Malt brand.

This highly drinkable blend features a subtle hit of peat smoke, combined with a light earthiness to make it a pleasant all-rounder.

The 8th company head, Tetsuzo Yamaguchi, who made suggestion on whisky production and obtained whisky production license, served as the initial president of Fukushima-KenNan-Syuhan Limited 3 years later.
