Ichiro Akito founded the famous Chichibu distillery in 2008 and quickly gained notoriety for his masterful drams and golden drops. Whatever he touches soon becomes a must-have, and in the Japanese Whisky universe, his products are as coveted as the rarest Katana.

This is one of three highly-limited Single Malt releases that Ichiro made for three specific markets in 2018: the U.S., London, and Paris. Bottled at respectable 56.4% ABV, this rare bottle has some serious kick. How rare, though? 1235 bottles!

One month a year, a peated new make spirit is produced with 50ppm of peated barley.
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.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
Akuto is now trying to produce a 100% Japanese single malt Whisky. He is working with Japanese producers to get barley and casks.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
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.
