Our recommandations

In 2007, Ichiro Akuto, the grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, started a new chapter in Japan's whisky history by building Chichibu distillery.

Situated about 70km north-west of Tokyo, production began in February 2008.

The equipment includes a small mill, a mash tun, washbacks  made of Jpanese oak (mizunara) and a pair of small copper stills manufactured by Forsyths of Rothes, Scotland.

Several different casks types are used, including Bourbon barrels, Sherry butts and Hogsheads, all matured in a traditional Dunnage style warehouse.

Enhanced by their environment, Chichibu whiskies are non-chill filtered and not coloured.
