Over a century later, Matsui, the owners of the Kurayoshi (which means “City of Water and Green”) distillery came into the whisky scene in 2019 with several luxurious product offerings.

As the name implies, Matsui Mizunara Cask Single Malt is double-distilled in pot stills then aged in Mizunara oak casks. The Mizunara oak is known for its rarity, explosiveness, and the difficulty to work its tight grain to make barrels. Mizunara needs to be around 200 years old before it can be cut and made into casks. When left to mature correctly, spirits aged in this scarce, coveted, and high-end oak are known for their unique and original flavors of sandalwood, coconut, spice, and Japanese incense.

Matsui Mizunara Cask Single Malt’s aging takes place in the Tottori prefecture in a natural environment very favorable to good maturing. It is then diluted down to good proof with high-quality natural spring water from Mount Daisen. This premium whisky won the Double Gold award at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SWSC) 2019 and also received the “Best Japanese Single Malt” accolade in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2020.

Take a sip of this masterpiece made with heart and passion by the Matsui team!
