Geographically, the Matsui Shuzou Distillery resides in the foothills of Mount Daisen, a volcanic peak standing over a mile above the surrounding fertile plains packed with lush vegetation, rugged coastlines, rivers, and lakes, characterized by its delicious, fresh groundwater. The volcanic-stone-filtered spring water is used to distill their Sake, Shōchū, and Whisky and bring it to proof – resulting in significant purity and unique, soft mineral composition.

To make it a premium offering, the Matsui – Kurayoshi 12 Years Old Pure Malt Whisky is a 100% malted barley Whisky. It has been aged over 12 years in new, lightly charred oak, and served up at an absolutely perfect 43% ABV without any unnecessary additives. The long term aging gives an outstanding balance of tart and sweet, mellowing the bright tones of the younger spirits into warm notes of nuts and toffee.

Enjoy a perfectly-crafted and marvelously-aged pure malt whisky!
