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. 

Japanese Quality Whisky Society (JQWS) has been operating since 2016 directly from a warehouse in Japan for online sales for Australia. JQWS had over 200 ranges of unique and quality whisky from Japan. Since 2018, we decided to change course due and delve into wholesale distribution and direct imports, moving away from public consumer based sales and spent much time planning our relaunch into Wholesale Distribution. 

2019 we launched in the Australian market with our new exclusive distillery partners from Japan and commenced a solid footprint thereon within the wholesale spirits industry. Our main focus is supporting our exclusive brands Whisky brands to Australia and New Zealand, whilst extending ranges within the white spirits category such as Gin, Shochu and Sake.

We supply an array of liquor wholesalers in the country, as well as competitors, licence venues, national retailers such as Dan Murphy’s and more.

In addition to our exclusive spirits offerings, JQWS will continue to import an array of authentic parallel brands of Japanese Whisky from our key supply chains established over years of hard work in Japan.
