Togouchi

Togouchi is owned by a company named Chugoku Jozo, based in or near Hiroshima, which produces sake, shochu, plum wine, liqueurs and alcoholic fruit juices. They don’t distil whisky, nor do they buy whisky from Japanese distilleries: they import Scotch malt and Canadian grain in cask and mature it in the town of Togouchi - in a tunnel, originally built for a railway line which never opened. The whiskies are blended on site.
