Chichibu distillery, located in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo, is owned by Venture Whisky, a Japanese whisky producer under the Ichiro’s Malt brand.

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.

Nose: exuberant, with notes of honey and juicy fruits: apricots, peaches, pineapple and applesauce; served with cinnamon, nutmeg and pepper for a hint of spices.

Palate: very rich, in the continuity of the nose with a nice fruity attack on the palate: apples, pears, citrus. Vanilla develops in finesse and leaves room for gourmet pastry notes.

Finish: long and balanced.
