Mars Whisky

The Hombo family, owners of Mars Whisky, first took out a license to distil whisky in 1949, although it was not until 1960 that it started making whisky – and not in Kagoshima, but at a purpose built plant in Yamanashi.

Iwai was also responsible for the design of their pot stills and is considered a pioneer in the history and development of pot still whisky in Japan.
