- Kujira 8 Years Old is made on Okinawa, an island in Japan, and is aged for 8 years in Spanish sherry and American bourbon casks.
The Okinawa islands extend towards Thailand and have a very hot climate.
The climate is perfectly suited for the indica rice that becomes Awamori through distillation.
Maturing the Awamori in American bourbon barrels creates the Kujira 8 Years Old Whisky. (automated translation)
