About Yomeishu Seizo
Headquartered in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Yomeishu is best known in Japan for its eponymous Yomeishu Liqueur. This is Japan's oldest medicinal liqueur, with a history dating back to 1602, so Yomeshu has an exceedingly wealth of experience in the use of plants and herbs in the production of alcohol. While many liqueurs such as Chartreuse or Jägermeister have moved away from their medicinal roots and have long been found in bars around the world, Yomeishu liqueur is still considered more of a medicinal product. It is sold in pharmacies across the country. Then, in early 2019, the company launched three craft spirits: the Kanomori Gin, the Kanoshizuku Gin, and a Craft Gin Cocktail. The portfolio was finally expanded a short time later to include the Yomeishu Ginger Liqueur as well as the Yoemishu Ginseng Liqueur, which are also available outside pharmacies. Incidentally, the company is keen to make its contribution to climate protection and had a solar park built in Tsurugashima City in Saitama Prefecture, north of Tokyo, in 2013. This generates electricity for 400 to 500 households per year.
