Genkai Brewery

Sake Brewery
This longstanding alcoholic beverage brewery, established in 1900, stands on National Route 382 on the southern side of Iki Island a 10-minute drive from Gounoura Port and Indoji Port. Iki is said to be the birthplace of barley shochu, and the brewery continues to make Iki shochu according to a unique method. The brewery is famous for its Mugi Shochu Iki, which delights with the aroma of barley and the sweetness of koji malted rice at the same time; and Takiizumi, which was awarded a gold prize by the Monde Selection. There's also a free adjoining shochu museum where you can see exhibits on shochu and also sample and purchase shochu.

Review

  • 気楽に試飲
    4.0 Reviewed : 2024.01.31
    重厚で神聖な酒蔵の雰囲気です。試飲は自由で店員さんもいい意味でほったらかしにしてくれます。(購入の手続き時に呼びます)。試飲場所ではこの蔵元の歴史・経歴などのパネルや物品が展示がしてあり、わかりやすく、見やすく、思わず読み入ってしまいました。
  • 様々な焼酎の試飲

    様々な種類の焼酎が試飲できます。今回は車でしたので試飲できませんでしたが、ドライバーでなくお酒好きの方でしたら、楽しめると思います。また、販売数量が少ない珍しい焼酎が手に入るので、お土産に良いと思います。
  • 120年の伝統がある「むぎ焼酎 壱岐」の蔵元です

    壱岐の麦焼酎は、麦:米麹=2:1 の割合で作られ、500年の伝統があり、ボルドーやバーボンと同じように、平成7年に世界のブランドの仲間入りしたそうです。日曜日で休日だそうで、説明役はいませんでしたが、自由にゆっくり見学させてくれました。
