Chichibu Limited Edition 2022
(0 review)

This exceptionally rare and coveted Whisky is Ichiro Akuto’s only 100% Japanese Blended Whisky. The product of the last remaining ancient Akuto stocks (up to 40 years old), the blend comprises only malt from the Hanyu distillery and grain (corn) from Kawasaki. Ex-Bourbon and Sherry barrels were used for aging. Only 500 bottles have been released to the world for 2022, boxed in Mizunara Oak. Previous editions of this release have won “World’s Best Blended Limited Release” at the World Whiskies Awards on four separate occasions: no little thanks to the strength of the stock and the blender’s otherworldly expertise.

    Ichiro Akuto founded the Chichibu distillery in 2007. The grandson of the founders of the famed, now demolished, Hanyu Distillery, the small distillery was custom built to be one of the world's very best. Ichiro takes no short cuts and is committed to the old style of making single malt. The distillery, situated in Saitama prefecture first began production in 2008. The distillery features a traditional mashtun, Mizunara washbacks, and a pair of small copper stills (2,000L) made by Forsyths in Rothers. The distillery uses ex-bourbon, sherry and hogsheads and ages exclusively in traditional dunnage-style warehouses. The Chichibu distillery has proved unequivocally that top class single malt does not need to be old to be superlatively good and each release is a revelation for those lucky enough to obtain a bottle.
