The Matsui Mizunara Cask

Daisen.

Whiskies produced by the Kurayoshi Distillery are produced with pure underground waters from the Daisen Mountains. The Matsui Single Malt is a tribute to Japanese culture and its «Ukiyo-e» drwaing art form. This new range really shows off Kurayoshi Distillery’s crafmanship in terms of Single Malt. Double distilled in pot stills then aged in Mizunara oak casks. Mizunara is known for its rarity and the difficulty to work its tight grain to make barrels. Spirits aged in this type of oak gain unique and original flavors. Aging takes place in the Tottori perfecture in a natural environment very favorable for a good aging. It is then diluted down with high quality natural spring water from Mont Daisen.
