Kuroki Honten Distillery

Kuroki Hoten has exclusively producing shochu since 1885. They have established themselves as a trailblazer in the industry by introducing many critically acclaimed shochu such as the aged barley shochu Kodoku no Hyakunen (literally “One Hundred Years of Solitude”)  one of the most well known and sought after barley shochu in Japan.

One company motto is that, “shochu-making is agriculture,” and they take great pride in growing all the ingredients for their shochu themselves on their own organic farm, even using the byproducts of shochu production in fertilizer to continue the cycle.
