A rare edition of fruity, savory, and unmistakably Umami flavors.
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 sulfur — their stills are made of stainless steel.
Like their other expressions, Fukano Whisky 2021 Edition is distilled, aged, and bottled in Japan. Crafted from a combination of malted and un-malted rice, this dram was distilled in a pot still before it was matured in red Wine casks and Manzanilla Sherry casks. Clocking in at 41.6% ABV, this bottle was released as a limited edition. Taste the wonderful balance of raw honey and fruity tones from the red Wine casks as well as savory flavors from the Manzanilla Sherry casks. And let’s not forget the unmistakable Umami.
