Quick Overview

The Fukano Distillery is located in Kumamoto, Japan and is most known for producing shōchū, a traditional Japanese spirit made from rice. This whisky begins as unaged shōchū, distilled from 100% malted rice, and then ages in new, charred oak barrels before it's bottled from a single cask.


Fukano rice whisky is essentially rice shochu that’s been aged in oak casks, but really the process for making shochu is similar to making any other distilled beverage. You start by getting some kind of fermentable organic ingredient (in this case rice since whisky requires a 100% grain mashbill), mashing it, fermenting it and then distilling that fermented liquid. Whether it’s bourbon, Irish whiskey or Scotch the basic process is the same, but with one major differentiator… copper. Because rice is a clean, sulfurless, distillate it doesn’t require copper stills to produce a drinkable beverage and is instead distilled in stainless steel still and distilled at a relatively low proof. After distillation the shochu is then transferred to new charred oak barrels and laid to rest in a warehouse that more closely resembles a Scottish dunnage than a Kentucky Rickhouse.
