Kanekou Okinawa whiskey is a new unique Okinawan whiskey produced at Shinzato Distillery, the oldest family distillery in Okinawa. For hundreds of years since its establishment, the distillery has faithfully adhered to its motto "Wajo Ryoshu" (translated as "good wine brewed in the spirit of harmony").

The current seventh generation owner and master blender Naoya Shinzato, continuing the same tradition of creating "harmony", i.e. j. creating a pleasant and consistent whole, she created Kanekou whiskey by mixing three types of whiskey - malt, wheat and rice whiskey (Ryukyu Whisky). This original blend gives rise to an aromatic and rounded taste unique to spirits produced on a subtropical island.

Kanekou is blended exclusively with malt and wheat whiskey aged three years or more and rice whiskey aged in sherry casks for more than 8 years. Ryukyu Whiskey is made entirely from rice and matured in oak barrels in the subtropical climate of Okinawa. The hot and humid climate accelerates the aging process in the barrel, while the gentle breeze from the Pacific Ocean adds a hint of subtropical flavor.

The designation "Kanekou" signifies the historical significance and long heritage of the Shinzato Distillery. Established in 1846, Shinzato Distillery is the oldest existing distillery in Okinawa and was among the first licensed producers of 'awamori' in the ancient era of the Ryukyu Kingdom (1429-1879). Awamori is a traditional Okinawan spirit that is over 500 years old; it was a prestigious drink enjoyed by the nobles of the Ryukyu Kingdom, as well as a common tribute to the Qing Dynasty and the Tokugawa Shogunate. Shinzato Distillery at the time operated under the name "Kanekou", from which the name Kanekou Whiskey is derived.
