At the time, the Shinzato distillery operated under the name "Kanekou", from which the label "Kanekou Whisky" was born.
This venerable distillery has remained true to its motto "Wajo Ryoshu" (translated: "good wine brewed in the spirit of harmony") for hundreds of years.
Only malt and wheat whisky aged for three years or more and rice whisky aged for more than 8 years in sherry casks are blended.
Ryukyu whisky is made exclusively from rice and aged in oak barrels in the subtropical climate of Okinawa. The hot and humid climate accelerates the maturation process in the barrels, while the gentle breeze from the Pacific Ocean adds a touch of subtropical flavor.
