"Rich and robust shochu for whiskey lovers."


We combined authentic rice shochu that had been aged in three types of barrels – American white oak, cognac, and sherry – in a delicate balance and blended it with our authentic rice shochu, Hakutake Shiro. Kinjo Shiro is characterized by its robust aroma and smooth, heavy taste created through aging the shochu in barrels. A harmony of carefully brewed barrel-aged shochu and the refreshing Hakutake Shiro, Kinjo Shiro makes for an extravagant drink.

The Takahashi Distillery

For over a century since its founding in 1900, Takahashi Shuzo has been focused on making authentic rice shochu in the Hitoyoshi Kuma region. This region is located in the southernmost point of Kumamoto Prefecture. It is not just any rice shochu that we make; it is Kuma Shochu with over 400 years of history. Kuma Shochu is a brand that has been permitted by the National Tax Agency to display a geographical indication. Alongside Iki Shochu(Nagasaki prefecture), Satsuma Shochu (Kagoshima prefecture) and Ryukyu Awamori (Okinawa prefecture), it is one of only four authentic shochu brands in Japan, and we have a mission to protect this Kuma Shochu and pass it on to future generations.
