Mizu is a ‘honkaku’ shochu (本格焼酎), meaning genuine or authentic, as it is handcrafted and single distilled in the traditional Japanese way. Distilling the ‘moromi’ mash just one time captures the true essence of our Saga-grown two-rowed barley and black koji rice by preserving their naturally occurring flavors and aromas. The result is a smooth, pure, natural taste that is uncommon and exquisite.

Munemasa maintains a centuries-old tradition in that all of the ingredients are sourced from nearby farms to highlight the flavors of the local harvests and to “create harmony between farm, community and distillery”. It is truly a “farm to bottle” spirit.
