Our City Our story takes place in a truly ancient land, one of spiritual and carnal harmony, in the temples of Nara in Japan. The ancient capital of Japan, Nara holds many temples from the 8th century that imperturbably give the holy capital its power. Our Shrine Omiwa Shrine in Nara is one of Japan’s oldest extant Shinto shrines. It is a tutelary shrine of the Japanese alcohol producers. Most well-known alcohol producer families are in Nara and these families have a centuries-old tradition of producing alcohol for Omiwa. The alcohol produced by these families is served as blessings at Shinto temples.
Kamiki Blended Malt Japanese Whisky celebrates the timeless alcohol tradition of the region by blending a Japanese style whisky that harmonizes Japanese nature and artisanship. The whisky is rested for a second time in Yoshino Sugi (Japanese Cedar) casks to capture a perfectly smooth taste, a scent of sandalwood on the nose and a zest of green tea in the finish. This second maturation makes our whisky unique.
