From the new #tsunuki distillery was the new make which one could taste at #homboshuzo#marsdistillery
To take advantage from the higher temperatures in the south of Kyushu they expect to get a good product in shorter time, they explained to me, why they went to Kyushu for the new distillery. Some months ago, I heard that they started to sell their new make and I was a bit ... surprised... but it is really worth a try, the taste of the young whisky is very promising.
The people at Hombo Shuzo were very pro-active in looking for foreign (!) customers, so the initial „Hello, what can we do you for you?“ was from their side 😊
I was happy to introduce my plans to come for distillery visits with foreign guests and they promised to support it in their best way.
I only have been to the #Shinshu distillery yet, which is in a true beautiful and remote place. So I am looking forward to see the new distillery, near the old Shochu distillery, which is the core and tradition of the company. And it is not far away from my beloved Sakurajima vulcano and the hot sand baths on the shores of Ibusuki - not to forget Kagoshima with its special atmosphere.
I am really looking forward to do this trip with people, who love good spirit(s) and are eager to know more about Japan! Contact me, if you would like to join!
