Chugoku Jozo

From Hiroshima to the world

In 1918, CHUGOKU JOZO Co. Ltd. was founded in the town of Sakurao in Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima. Its distinct flavours were born from techniques and traditions that have been cultivated from over 100 years of experience in the production of alcohol, and to this day, these flavours are still loved and fondly enjoyed by many. However, it has been the company's belief that it is important to not just rely on traditional techniques alone. With that in mind, in 2018,  CHUGOKU JOZO Co. Ltd established the SAKURAO DISTILLERY, a craft distillery in Hiroshima, to challenge new possibilities in the production of Western liquors.

Innovation From Tradition

It has been driven to the challenge of producing a product that will grab the world’s attention for no other reason than it’s in its DNA to endlessly pursue innovation. It distillery that contributes to Japan’s Western liquor culture and demonstrates the bountiful riches that Japan’s nature has to offer. This spirit of innovation from tradition brought the company to where it is, and it will continue its story for the next 100 years.





Our Thoughts... The Sakurao distillery boasts some extremely flavour full spirits and we look forward to the new and innovative flavours that SAKURAO DISTILLERY will develop in the future. We are very pleased to have their drinks in the Distoo portfolio.
