A limited edition rice Whisky aged in refill Whisky and Red Wine casks with an elegant and smooth profile.

Fukano Distillery has been operated in Hitoyoshi City since 1823 by five generations of the Fukano family. The current head of the business is Shigeruriku Fukano. Their primary product is Shōchū — an un-aged, lightly distilled Spirit usually around 25% ABV. It’s exceptionally popular in Japan and has been produced there since the 16th century. Interestingly, since most of their products are based upon rice, sweet potatoes, and sugar — ingredients low in sulphur — their stills are made of stainless steel.

Like all Fukano Spirits, The Fukano Whisky 2020 Edition is made from local rice. When un-aged, it’s called Shochu. And Shochu is even more sensitive to the influences of wood than barley or corn. Each edition of Fukano Whisky is strictly limited and each one sells out quickly due to high demand. The 2020 edition was matured in a combination of refill and ex-Red Wine casks — a delectable combination, yielding a subtle palate with notes of rose petals and almond cookies.

Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
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.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
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.
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.
