Welcome to Woodstock Wine & Liquor!
Notes of wet leather, cherry, prune, and dried mushroom on the nose; the palate is soft and oily with flavors of pear, cherry, molasses, and Oloroso Sherry. The finish is pleasantly drying with oak, sea salt, and red apple skin.
Ohishi Whisky is distilled entirely from rice and aged in either Brandy or Sherry Casks. To ensure the quality of the spirit, the Master Distiller utilizes 30% estate-grown rice for distillation with the remaining 70% coming from the surrounding Kumamoto prefecture. Because of the rice’s efficient and subsequent clean fermentation, Ohishi uses a pot still made from stainless steel, as opposed to copper.
Ohishi Distillery was founded in 1872, located in the Southwest of Japan, in a beautifully mountainous and scenic countryside. Ohishi sits near the tiny village of Mizukami and is the closest distillery to the source of the Kuma River, one of the fastest flowing rivers in all of Japan, renowned and prized for its superior water quality. Ohishi has been a family business for five generations, primarily known for its sake & shochu production.
