Shochu, Japan’s national distilled liquor, has a history dating back over 500 years.In Kagoshima and the rest of southern Japan, it has developed into the daily drink of the people.Carrying on traditions while painting the picture of how shochu will evolve in the future: we believe that both are the mission of a shochu distillery, and we strive to be a company that continues to explore the possibilities of shochu.
In continuous production since our founding and the local drink of Shibushi, the ultimate everyday spirit we have always aimed to create. Our most well-known brand, representing Wakashio Distillery and our continual pursuit of quality.
Carefully crafted using traditional techniques, one batch at a time. Symbolizing how we have inherited shochu culture and endeavor to help evolve it for the next generation, this is the flagship brand of Wakashio Distillery.
Without being bound to the confines of specs, but simply with the desire to have it enjoyed, this is our brand through which we challenge the possibilities of shochu.
The world’s only craft gin made in a wooden pot still. A brand that seeks out a new form of Japanese gin to share with the world.

Shibushi City is located along the eastern border of Kagoshima Prefecture and developed as a port town with thriving trade since long ago. Since our company’s founding, we have been producing the “everyday drink” of the local community, and we aim to continue to refine the techniques and culture of shochu in order to share it from Shibushi to the world.
