Distillery Information

Hombo Shuzo is part of the massive Hombo Group, a conglomerate with interests spanning multiple industries: combinis, logistics, retail, foodstuffs, and of course alcohol.

But they didn’t start actually distilling their own whisky until 1960, and that was at the company’s Yamanashi Factory. That lasted until 1969. Distillation resumed in 1981, but this time at the company’s Kagoshima Factory. That Kagoshima Factory went dark (for whisky, anyway) in 1985 upon completion of Mars Shinshu. Famously, Mars Shinshu itself went through a hiatus from 1992 to 2011.
