Distiller: Helios Distillery
Distiller’s Profile: Helios Distillery is better known for their local Shochu: Awamori as well as for their craft Rum production. The majority of these spirits are sold and consumed domestically in Japan and only a small portion are exported to the U.S. market. Due to the high heat and humidity of Okinawa, Angel's Share (i.e. the rate of evaporation in ageing vessels for their spirits) is high; it is said that 3 years of age in Okinawa is the equivalent of 12 years in Scotland.
