Since the Liquor Tax Law came into force in 1899 , 55 shochu breweries have sprung up in Iki .
Since then, they have been merged and abolished repeatedly, and now seven of them are working hard to make shochu. Iki no Kura Sake Brewery, which stands on a small hill in the center of the island, is one of them.
In 1984, six sake breweries gathered to form the Iki Shochu Cooperative Association. In 2010 , we changed our company name to Iki no Kura Sake Brewery in hopes of further growth and development of Iki Shochu.
While preserving the traditional techniques passed down since the 16th century, we have boldly taken on new challenges such as vacuum distillation and flower yeast preparation, and continue to pursue the deliciousness of Iki shochu.
