Osumi: Where Innovation Flourishes

At Suntory, the artisans of the House are committed to selecting the best ingredients, and elaborating on complex and innovative making techniques to create spirits of unrivaled quality and unique Japanese character. It is the signature of the House of Suntory‘s “Monozukuri” craftsmanship. Osumi Distillery is a new iteration of that philosophy, and inherits Shinjiro Torii’s vision of challenge and quest of excellence.

Spirits Making at Osumi

First, the white rice is fermented with “rice koji” to create a mash. The mash is then distilled through pot stills to create a rice spirit. This process takes place in Kagoshima, in Kyushu, a region historically famous for its rice spirit making know-how.
