I’m planning a trip to Japan and if already there, why not make a distillery tour (@KevinDK, your list is very useful for me now). Has anyone been to any of the distilleries or can otherwise recommend any? Unfortunately some distilleries are located on quite remote islands but I’ve already found the Nine Leaves interesting and approachable but their website says they don’t invite visitors to the distillery . Looking Foreward your experiences/recommendations.
doing research on my own and I found out that Cor Cor, Kiyomi and Teeda are brands of the same distillery: Helios Distillery from Okinawa. Generally all the Japanese distilleries are located in very remote islands, with one exception, the Nine Leaves from Honsiu.
@Kudzey according to my Japanese wife, tours are not very common in distilleries in Japan. There might be a chance at Suntory, which has several breweries and distilleries throughout Japan.
Crossing my fingers that you find places to visit.
By the way, there are many nice bars in the bigger cities with a large range of rum and especially whisky. The rum community is growing very fast, so in the future it’ll get even better I think.
Do you have any bar recommendations? I’ll probably stay in Honsiu most of the time and visit all the major cities.
Probably the top one is Bar Lamp in Ginza. The ovner is a rum aficionado and one of the founding members of the rum society in Japan.
I will have my wife find some other cool places. I know there are many bars in Shinjuku and also many really good tiny restaurants hidden in the small alleys. A must try for travellers
Bar Lamp looks great, added to my list
Something new has arrived in Tokyo
Can only be enjoyed at this restaurant (for now)
The sugarcane used are from the different Okinawa islands they represent.
Looks great! Where can I find it?
Wow, ich wusste nicht, dass die Japaner auch Rum herstellen. Ich muss mal nach einem Sample ausschau halten.
