Kirishima Distillery (霧島町蒸留所・明るい農村)

4.5

Sake Brewery

A shochu distillery established in 1911. The distillery’s flagship Akarui Noson is made the traditional way in earthenware pots with spring water. Other than the first three days of the new year, visitors can view the distillery any day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The distillery tour takes 15 minutes and during the guided tour you can see everything from the actual production area where shochu is being made to the bottle filling area. The distillery’s shop offers samples and sells liqueurs and shochu liquors made on-site. Visitors can also hand draw their own shochu label and create their very own, one of a kind bottle of shochu.

霧島神宮へ向かう途中に見つけて立ち寄りました。
販売所のスタッフの方にお願いすると、20分程の見学案内をすぐにして下さいます。
思っていた以上に自然の中で丁寧に作られており、是非飲んでみたいと思いました。
(名前は知っていたが飲んだことはなかった)

また、スタッフの方が皆さん(スタッフ職人さんともに)優しくて丁寧に挨拶をして下さり、ファンになりました。

優しい方が丁寧に作るお酒は美味しいに違い...

明るい農村、農家の嫁などのブランドで全国的に有名な蔵です。自然豊かな山あいにあり、またキレイな水で作られる素晴らしい環境にあります。そして親切、丁寧な対応されるスタッフの方々で、みんなここのファンになります。私は3度目ですが、何度でも訪れたくなります。また蔵元でしか手に入らない限定品も魅力ですよ。霧島神宮にも近いので、観光の際は立ち寄られるといいですよ。

タイトルにある銘柄の酒造所。〜の嫁など名前に凝られている。ひとりの為試飲できず、残念。名前の通り明るい接客、お見送りもいただいた。

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
