Eigashima Shuzo is one of Japan’s oldest family-run distilleries with 100 years of whisky-making experience. Established in 1679, Eigashima was once considered among the top 100 corporations of the Meiji era of Japan. Now Eigashima is lovingly known as “Japan’s Micro Distillery” having just recently hired their 7th full-time employee.
Eigashima has been making sake and shochu with Japanese traditional craftsmanship since 1888, and as the first distillery to obtain a license to make whisky in Japan in 1919, is a true pioneer in its field. Known for its clean air and water, the city of Akashi is located in close proximity to Kobe and is the only distillery in Japan situated closely to the sea.
"With Honesty” as the company motto throughout the centuries, Eigashima’s ninth generation leader, Mr. Hiraishi has uncompromising standards for each drop of his beautiful products.
