Chichibu 2012 #1883 & Chichibu 2011 #1402

From its Mizunara wash backs and small stills with steep lyne arms to the fact that the mashman uses a wooden paddle to stir the mash, Chichibu is a hands-on distillery with quality as an intrinsic focus. With the ground now broken on a blending room, and an off-site cooperage, Ichiro Akuto’s distillery, formed from the ashes of his grandfather’s Hanyu distillery, is one of the finest producers in Japan.

This pair of single cask Chichibus have been bottled for Spirit Shop Selection.

One of 270 Bottles.
