The Togouchi story begins with the building of an underground railway line in the city of Togouchi in the 1970s. The new tunnel was abandoned before use but was luckily identified by the Chugoku Jozo distillery as harbouring the perfect temperate conditions for aging their premium Japanese Whisky.
Togouchi sources the finest Scottish and Canadian spirits for their whisky, imparting the peated smokiness and mild finish typical of Japanese spirits during the aging and blending process. Prior to bottling, the liquid is diluted with spring water from the Sandankyo mountains.
