Tottori is also very well-known for its soft mineral water and abundance of nature. Over 14 percent of the total land area of the prefecture is designated as a Natural Park. Matsui Shuzo is both a sake brewery and shochu distillery.Kurayoshi is a 100 percent malted barley whisky, sourced from distilleries around Scotland, before making their way to Japan, where it is blended with Japanese whisky, aged and cut to proof with the soft ground waters of Tottori Prefecture.This 8-year-old whisky is aged with the underground waters of Daisen Mountains in carefully selected sherry casks, yielding rich aromas with deep flavors.
