QUALITY

Our collection of Japanese whiskies has been carefully curated to ensure you receive quality authentic spirits.
All spirits are 100% authentic and direct from Japan. Clearly classified ‘made in Japan’ for some ranges or a ‘product of Japan’  now for most. A ‘product of Japan’ is generally a blended ‘world malt’, and that doesn’t mean the quality is any less. 
All 100% certified by a certificate of origin when imported, and under the certification of being distilled within Japan. JQWS is a repeatable company and we ensure all spirits listed are verified origin from Japan. 
J-Members may unlock extremely rare and valuable collectors items when available for release from Japan. All gift boxed, certificates of authenticity and origins. These include our parallel import products such as Yamazaki, Hibiki, ChiChibu & Nikka. These lines are on pre-order allocations and generally not available to the wholesale market as collectible items.

OUR STORY

The Japanese Quality Whisky Society was formed to to meet the growing demand for Japanese Whisky in Australia in 2016. 

Commencing online as a retailer & trader that ranged  over 200 products of Japanese Whisky. Over the last 2 years, we have slowly graduated into a direct bulk importer, sliming down our ranges to a exclusive and niche portfolio of Japanese Spirits that over deliver in quality and presentation for the price. ”JQWS” are the direct importers of a range of fine & unique artisan Japanese Spirits.
