Ji-whiskies are definitely worth a try. Their quality might not always match up to the giants like Suntory and Nikka, but they can nevertheless prove surprisingly good.

What is ji-Whisky?

Ever heard of ji-whisky? Ji-whisky is a name the Japanese give to whiskies produced by small local breweries and distilleries. They differ in the sense that they are not distributed nationwide and are often not well known outside their local areas. The producers often specialize in brewing sake or shochu and only brew whisky on the side.
