Matsui Distillery "The Tottori" 23 Years Old Blended Whisky



Even the most ardent fans of Japanese whisky would be forgiven not to have heard of the Matsui distillery. 

Founded in 1910, Matsui Shuzo is located in the Tottori Prefecture, Northwest of Kyoto and Northeast of Hiroshima, on the shore of the Sea of Japan.  Over 14% of the prefecture is a natural park, packed with lush vegetation, rugged coastlines, rivers, and lakes.

Matsui Shuzo is historically known in Japan as both a sake brewery and shochu distillery.  The blended whisky found in bottlings of The Tottori has been sourced from distilleries around Scotland and Japan before making their way to Matsui Shuzo for blending and aging. The whisky is then proofed down with the famously soft groundwaters of Tottori Prefecture.

Matsui has proven itself to be masterful in blending and aging whisky with both its Kurayoshi and Tottori collections and is now stepping confidently into the world of whisky distillation with its single malt collection entitled, “The Matsui”.
