Okinawa 2001, a completely new whiskey created by Okinawa's sake culture.

What is Okinawa 2001?

Okinawa 2001 is a new form of whiskey created by crystallizing a cross between the distillation techniques of Awamori and the barrel aging techniques of the West.

Awamori is a distilled liquor that has been produced in Ryukyu (present-day Okinawa) since the 17th century. It is a liquor designed to increase in flavor and depth of aroma as it ages.

Okinawa 2001 was created by combining this liquor, which becomes more delicious as it ages, with the barrel-aging technique used in whiskey and brandy.

How is it different from malt whiskey?

Unlike malt whiskey, rice whiskey is made from rice, which gives it a natural sweetness and a clear taste. Also, unlike ordinary spirits, it is distilled only once, which means that the liquor itself contains a lot of flavorful ingredients, giving it a heavy body and a long-lasting aftertaste.

Rice whiskey is appreciated around the world.

Kumeisen Shuzo's Kujira 20 Year Old, made using the same production method, has won numerous awards at whiskey and spirits competitions in the United States. Please try this new whiskey of Okinawan origin that is highly regarded around the world.
