Matsui Single Malt Japanese Whisky

Matsui Shuzo, owner of the Kurayoshi whisky brand was established as a schochu distiller in Tottori, Japan back in 1910. Since then, the company has also been sourcing and selling imported age statement malts, but only started to distill whisky in 2017. The Matsui label is their first actual 100% 'Made in Japan' offering. There are three NAS whiskies in the new Matsui line up: Mizunara Cask, Sakura Cask, and The Peated and while we have promoted the former two last year, this time around we have managed to secure all three in very small quantities for another release into the Australian market.

Jim Murray awarded the Mizunara Cask as Japanese Single Malt of the Year in his 2020 Bible and the praise continued for the Sakura Cask in the following edition while The Peated featured in Whisky Advocate's Top 20 whiskies for 2019.
