Kirishima Shuzo Co., Ltd.

By Weekender Editor

Kirishima Shuzo is a distillery in Miyazaki Prefecture whose first ever shochu back in 1916 was a satsuma imo (sweet potato) one made with black koji. Kirishima kept with tradition and continued this line of black koji shochu, which grew into their now nationally recognized Kuro Kirishima. At Kirishima Shuzo, they use 100 percent Japan-grown sweet potatoes, Japan-grown rice and pure Kirishima groundwater (from 100m underground).

There are no hard rules on shochu drinking style – enjoy it on the rocks, mizuwari (with water), oyuwari (with hot water) or sparkling water. Best of all, shochu is a healthy choice that’s low in calories and contains no purines (there are also gluten-free versions available). No wonder Kirishima’s tipples were served at the Academy Award’s Governors Ball for three straight years since 2018 – after being introduced by Wolfgang Puck.

Price:
Kuro Kirishima (25%), 900ml: ¥1,016 (tax incl.)
Shiro Kirishima (25%), 900ml: ¥1,016 (tax incl.)
Aka Kirishima (25%), 900ml: ¥1,293 (tax incl.)
