The Tatsumi Distillery is a unique distillery that was established by Shohei Tatsumi as a ‘one man’ operation in 2017. Located in the heart of Gifu Prefecture, in the traditional city of Gujo Hachiman, a quaint town at the foot of the Japanese Alps. Brewing techniques remain true to traditional practices and materials, using a copper pot still and a Kabutogama wooden still to create superb Gin and Absinthe.
The Kabutogama still is a distillation method that was originally developed in the Edo Period, and was widely used until the late 19th century. Tatsumi-san, the owner and founder of Tatsumi Distillery, is committed to reviving this method through his dedication to the virtues of patience and expertise, in order to create authentic, handcrafted artisan spirits. His passion and energy for distilling some unique and superb creations of Gin and Absinthe is slowly gaining the utmost respect of his peers and consumers throughout Japan and the world.
