NEW BLOG: We visited the brand new Isle of Harris Distillery last week as they celebrated their official grand opening. Today, they open to the public. And we can vouch for it being a fantastic new distillery and very welcoming to visitors. Can't wait for the whisky to roll out of here in a few years.

Yoichi (Japan)

Yoichi Distillery is situated close to the Sea of Japan in the town of Yoich and on the Shakotan Peninsular which is on the west side of Hokkaido Island. Yoichi Distillery is the most northerly distillery in Japan and also the second oldest distillery in Japan having been founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru who had studied whisky production in Scotland. Distilling commenced in 1936, blended whisky was released in 1940 and then Yoichi single malt whisky in 1984. Yoichi is equipped with six stills which are heated directly by a coal fire. Worm tubs are used to cool the spirit and the distillery has its own cooperage. A small number of Japanese Oak casks are filled for maturation. Yoichi Distillery visitor centre welcomes visitors and offers distillery tours.
