Takemine Koji Japanese Whiskey: The Best Mold in Japan
Takamine 8-Year-Old Koji Whiskey, which is fully Japanese (while many other Japanese whiskies are not). Takamine is made only of barley is grown in Japan; all production, bottling, and aging take place in Japan; and – perhaps most importantly – it is made using that nation’s most traditional fermentation technique: koji fermentation.
Koji, the national mold of Japan, is usually used to saccharify rice for products such as sake, mirin, and soy sauce. In this case, the Takamine Process – developed by Jokichi Takamine in 1890 — uses koji on barley, creating a maltless whiskey that is more Japanese than any other Japanese whiskey.. Takamine is double distilled, aged in virgin oak and ex-bourbon barrels, and has a unique umami character.
