The Ontake Distillery

Situated atop a mountain with breathtaking views of Kagoshima City, Kagoshima Bay, and Sakurajima, The Ontake Distillery offers an unparalleled panorama, making it one of the most picturesque whisky distilleries you'll encounter. This esteemed distillery commenced operations in December 2019, marking the beginning of a new era in whisky craftsmanship.

Established by Nishi Shuzo, a company with a rich heritage dating back to 1845, The Ontake Distillery stands as a testament to their dedication to excellence. While Nishi Shuzo has garnered acclaim for its renowned line of sweet potato shochus under the esteemed brand name Houzan, they have ventured into the realm of whisky with equal passion and commitment.

Far from merely an adjunct to their shochu endeavors, The Ontake Distillery embodies Nishi Shuzo's unwavering pursuit of crafting the finest quality whisky. With a steadfast focus on quality and craftsmanship, the company is determined to establish itself as a prominent player in the whisky industry.

The name "Ontake" pays homage to the three towering peaks of Sakurajima: Kitadake, Nakadake, and Minamidake, symbolising the lofty aspirations and heights of excellence to which The Ontake Distillery aspires.
