  • Knowledge delivered in a great style.

    Christopher and Stephen have written the books on shōchū and awamori and in Japan Distilled, they bring an easy going and easy listening style to a wide range of distilled Japanese drinks. I often listen to episodes a number of times and find something new on each listening. Two blokes I’d love to have a drink with and chew the fat! 乾杯

  • The best new spirits podcast out there!

    If you are involved in any aspect of the drinks industry or have any interest in the food culture of Japan, this is a can’t-miss podcast! The episodes are deep-dives into fascinating information and history that’s difficult to find in English anywhere else, but still manage to be incredibly entertaining at the same time. It’s the rare podcast that can appeal to both the enthusiastic amateur and the professional, but this is it — if you aren’t already subscribed, you need to be!
