Kinryu Corporation, the headquarters of the Yuza Distillery, was established in 1950 through the investment of nine sake makers in Sakata, Yamagata Prefecture. Sake brewers are all manufacturers who are committed to offering the highest quality products. Kinryu has inherited this "quality first" spirit and this passion for "finding the best sake" for many years. The spirit and passion are the same when producing whiskey at Yuza Distillery. With a commitment to quality and a passion for whiskey making, they aim for the highest standard of whiskey and will only distribute whiskey that has been aged to satisfactory quality. They follow a concept called “TLAS” (Tiny, Lovely, Authentic and Supreme). The distillery is not disproportionate, they use groundwater from Yuza which has been recognized as one of the top 100 in Japan by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. The key word is Japanese excellence.
