Japanese whisky distilleries

A well-established whisky scene in Japan is leading to a number more gins being released onto the market.

Many of these whisky distilleries are releasing gins for the export market – specifically the US. Gin is yet to be popularised in Japan and plays ‘second fiddle’ to the whisky trade but there are signs that gin maybe starting to make its move.

At Beacon Commodities, we have supplied the Japanese market for decades and have now noticed a surge in new enquiries. Tommy went to visit both new and existing customers in Japan on his way back from PyeongChang in South Korea.
