Togouchi

A rather unusual whisky, In 1918 Chugoku Jozo was established near the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Mainly a producer of sake and shochu. In 1990 they decided to add whisky to their range of products. However, they were not to distill the whisky themselves. Instead they started sourcing malt whisky from Scotland and grain whisky from Canada. The maturation and blending is then done at Chugoku Jozo. The maturation is done in an abandoned railway tunnel, the 361 meter long tunnel was drilled in 1970 by JR Japanese railway company, in order to expand the line up from Kabe to Hamada in Shimane. The project never came to reality and the tunnel was left unused. Chugoku Jozo say it has the ideal conditions for aging shochu and whisky with a constant temperature of 14 degrees Celsius and a humidity of 80%
