A special blend of Japanese Whiskies designed to reflect the flavors and hues of Japan in Autumn.

Shiki Distillery is a brand new venture located in the Hyogo Prefecture, just northwest of Osaka, Japan. They are preparing to distill their own Spirits, but like most ventures in the Spirits industry, They have begun by curating Spirits from Japan’s best producers to establish a style. Their first foray in the Shiki line of four Whiskies meant to reflect the character of the four seasons in Japan.

Shunka Shuto Autumn Japanese Blended Whiskey is comprised of a range of Japanese Spirits that have been carefully married to craft a flavor profile. In this case, to taste like Autumn in Japan. And just as the Autumn season brings a wash of vibrant colors from the maple trees around Kyoto, Shunka Shuto Autumn brings vibrant notes of apple and lemon and freshly harvested grain.

Smartass Corner:
In Japanese, the word “Shiki” (四季) translates as “Four Seasons.”

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!
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
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.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
