Established in 1918 in the heart of a mountainous region near the city of Hiroshima, Chugoku Jozo produces sake and shochu but also whisky. To be more precise, malt and grain whiskies used in the composition of Togouchi, come from Scotland and Canada. Only aging, blending and bottling are carried out by the team of Chugoku Jozo.
The Togouchi 12 years is a blended whisky with a scottish and canadian character but also a typical japanese soul. Aged in oak barrels and made with a good percentage of peaty single malts, this whisky expresses intense woody and cereal aromas mixed with delicate notes of peat.
