Japan Distillery Map

Japan Distillery Map

If you're looking for a map of Japan's whisky distilleries, rum distilleries, gin distilleries, or other kind of distilleries, you're in the right place!

This map shows all major distilleries in Japan, including legendary distilleries that have closed, those currently operating, and even those expected to start distilling in the near future. I'll keep this updated as much as possible going forward. Each listing describes the distillery's major products, years open, and whether or not you can actually visit it.

Please note that for now the map covers only distilleries making Western liquors. I'll consider adding shochu distilleries later if there's enough demand.

Like many countries, distilling for purposes of making liquor requires a license in Japan. This licensing process is managed by Japan's National Tax Agency.
