The distillery Chugoku Jozo
Togouchi is a whisky created by the Japanese distillery Chugoku Jozo located near Hiroshima. This distillery has been making liquor, sake and shochu, a traditional Japanese alcohol, since 1918. In 1990, they began to make whisky and the Togouchi brand was born. Since then, Chugoku Jozo has developed and refined its skills and techniques to make some of the very best Japanese spirits.
