Japanese single grain Spirit from the foothills of Mount Fuji aged fifteen years in American white oak.

Mount Fuji is an icon of Japanese culture around the world. The majestic, snow-capped stratovolcano sits bout sixty mile east of Tokyo. But much closer in the southern foothills is the town of Fuji where the melted glacial waters from Mount Fuji spring out from the rocks. It is in this perfect place that Fuji Takasago and his brewmaster Noto Tōji decided to build the Miyazaki Saki and Shochu facility in 1831. They have grown slowly and honorably in the same location for nearly two hundred years, expanding into a range of quality Spirits.

Teitessa 15 Year Old Grain Japanese Whisky is the youngest Spirit in the Teitessa lineup right now — and that’s saying something. All three Spirits start with the same single grain foundation as all three of their signature drams. Due to the distillery’s nearly two-hundred year history crafting Saki and Shochu, the single grain is most likely rice fermented with koji. The Spirit was then aged in American white oak for fifteen years.

Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
