The tradition of ageing distilled beverages is relatively recent in Japan and, although it was adopted almost a century ago, particularly for whisky, it is quite directly inspired by Western habits. It is in this context that this very innovative project, called "Taruski", was launched by the current director of Ariake Sangyo, Nobuyuki Odawara. Driven by the spirit of innovation that characterises his family, his objective is to move towards the use of local wood species in order to see the emergence of a new generation of spirits marked with a pure Japanese identity. We would like to take you on a journey to discover its latest experiments, the fruit of collaboration with the Oishi Shuzo shochu distillery in Kumamoto. Let's discover Tarukura Kuri and Tarukura Sakura!
