There are many distilleries in the UK that produce handmade, small-batch products.
In 2022, we will deepen our relationship with a small distillery in the north of England (Black Bridge Distillery) to create MOON SHINE, which recreates a traditional recipe, and TOFFEE VODKA, which has a caramel flavor that is popular in the UK. Toffee Vodka)” have been released under the “813KAGA” brand.
All nine brands of distilled spirits that have been released so far are making their debut in Japan. This is a limited quantity product that not only has taste and flavor, but also has a story.

This is because in 2021, a friend living in the UK sent me MOON SHINE, a distilled spirit that has not been released in Japan, and the taste of it was so shocking.
I was also captivated by the fact that they are a small, handmade distillery, and that their products have a story to tell. I want to introduce a part of Britain’s rich culture to Japan! With this in mind, we launched the imported alcoholic beverage brand “813KAGA”, even though we are in a different industry.
Currently, we offer nine unique brands of small-batch distilled spirits that are not available at major companies on Amazon’s official website and at bars and snacks in Tokyo and local areas. We would like to develop our business to convey the taste and value of rare distilled spirits to the people of Japan.
