SINCE 1823

Fukano was the first distillery in the Kumamoto region to mature its shochu in barrels, a novel practice spearheaded by Chizuru Fukano, the mother of current distillery president Seiichi Fukano. It’s this post-distillation wood aging that turns the fresh shochu into something more accurately classified as whisky.
