Saburomaru Distillery is the only distillery in the Hokuriku region.
Founded in 1952, Sunshine Whisky was the first whisky that Wakatsuru
Brewery launched after obtaining the license to produce whisky in 1952.
The name “Sunshine Whisky,” which was launched only in Toyama Prefecture
in the following spring, was chosen from suggestions collected from the
general public with the will of letting the sun rise again in Japan,
which had lost everything to the war, with the distilled spirits made
with water, air, and sunlight.
