List of products by brand Matsui Whisky
Matsui Whiskey, founded by the Japanese entrepreneur Shuzo Matsui, was born as an important selector and producer of exceptional Japanese whiskey, sake and shochu, a typical Japanese drink obtained from the fermentation and subsequent distillation of sweet potatoes, barley, rice or sesame. Matsui Distillery is located in Tottori, the capital and prefecture of the island of Honshū, along the west coast of Japan, famous for its sand dunes and its original Japanese whiskey. The Tottori Whiskey by Matsui is in fact a blended Japanese whiskey known and appreciated all over the world for its elegance and refinement, with a soft and clean taste, declined in various bottlings and types to satisfy even the most refined palates. Matsui Whiskey also produces and bottles perhaps the most representative line of the company: the Kurayoshi. This range takes its name from Kurayoshi Distillery, a distillery controlled and managed by Matsui, which for several years has been producing this Japanese whiskey directly with artisanal methods and in small batches. The company philosophy is as simple as it is fascinating, that is to give the consumer the best possible experience, enjoying a sip of Japanese tradition and culture. The small distillery uses simple ingredients, such as the spring water of the Daisen Mountains and the great experience of its staff to guarantee this excellence, offering different Pure Malt whiskeys in the “Kurayoshi” line and Blended Japanase Whiskey with the “The Tottori” line.
