Iichiko Hita Distillery
As a sake producer that develops raw sake, Iichiko Hita Distillery is devoted to every advanced technique for producing shochu, including utilizing raw sake made entirely of malt that is brewed during both primary and secondary preparations using only barley malt, and long-term storage that slowly ages sake in oak barrels and hollow tanks. The distillery produces raw sake for Iichiko shochu while striving to create an even greater depth of flavor. The development process for creating shochu can be viewed by the public.
