Nagahama Whisky

Nagahama Distillery is in Shiga Prefecture, Japan. It's one of the smallest whisky distilleries in the country but has made a big impact since its start in 2016. Although newer than other Japanese distilleries, Nagahama is known for its high-quality whisky.

Located in Nagahama city, the distillery benefits from the area's long brewing history and natural resources. This includes Lake Biwa, Japan's largest freshwater lake. The lake's clean water is crucial in making their whisky.

Despite its small size, the distillery has big ambitions. A dedicated team oversees everything from mashing to ageing. They blend Scottish techniques with Japanese precision.

The whiskies are smooth, gentle, and a bit sweet. Each type has its own unique taste. Different casks used in maturation add various flavours. Although limited in quantity, these whiskies are praised for their balance and complexity.

The distillery also focuses on being transparent and sustainable. They aim to make whiskies that reflect Nagahama's spirit and traditions.

Nagahama is part of Japan's growing craft whisky movement. It shows how small producers can achieve excellence, adding to Japan's whisky diversity. Their success is a result of dedication, quality ingredients, and respect for tradition.
