Based at the foothills of Mt. Daisen, Kurayoshi whisky is produced at the Matsui Shuzou facility in the Tottori Prefecture, northwest of Kyoto, which was founded in 1910. Over 14% of the area is a natural park, and Kurayoshi takes pride in their use of the mountain’s crystal clear water, filtered through volcanic stone in the making of their whiskies, sake and shochu.
