This sake brewery shop is known for its “Sasanokawa” brand, which has a history of more than 250 years. Asaka Distillery, the oldest craft whiskey distillery in Tohoku, makes authentic malt whiskey. This tour guides you through the sake-making process, including visits to a sake brewery, distillery, and warehouse. The copper whiskey pot stills at the distillery stand out against the white plaster wall. At the warehouse where a faint aroma of whiskey lingers in the air, you will get a close look at whisky barrels that are breathing quietly. Taste various sake and whiskey to compare their different flavors and buy your preferred sake or whiskey.
