Collection: Kodama Distillery

Japanese name: 小玉醸造

From: Miyazaki prefecture

Founded in: 1818

Kodama is a rare distillery that fully hand-crafts its sweet potato (imo) shochu in the traditional way, intentionally avoiding any modern technologies. The distillery was founded back in the nineteenth century, but had stopped producing any shochu in the late twentieth century, until the current head distiller brought it back to life in 2001.
