The Kanosuke distillery went into operation in 2018. The distillery is located among a number of buildings on a spacious, 9,000-square-meter tract of land. As Kagoshima’s weather is typically warm year-round, maturation is accelerated. Kanosuke opened its visitor center at the end of April 2018.
The spirit stills are different shapes to have different flavour profiles. One is designed for a heavier style, the other lighter and fruitier. They are currently using sherry, bourbon and shōchū casks.
