Yanagita Distillery 柳田酒造
This family-owned Shochu distillery is where the ,fifth generation president, Tadashi Yanagita played as a child, where he'd live and where he'd learn. When suddenly the opportunity came to him to start working at the distillery, he was amazed at how natural it was to be there.
Traditional techniques such as making Shochu is not easy. He occasionally found himself feeling enormous pressure from the tradition. He saw an unfavorable wind challenging him with no mercy.
He closed his eyes and remembered "Taking over a tradition is to stack up new creations". He seized the momentand continued making Shochu that he believed in. Tadashi says that he will never forget the teachings of predecessors who taught him to experience the fun of producing new creations.
Yanagita Distillery strives with their tradition of 112 years.
