The first of the Four Seasons releases from Shiki Distillery — Spring — has a light and fresh profile.

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 Spring Blended Japanese Whisky is the first of four releases from Shiki Distillery. It is a blend of Japanese Whiskies. The Spirits are married and aged in American white oak. In keeping with the vision, this Spring edition has a light and refreshing palate with notes of juicy fruits and a light honey with shortbread.

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

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.
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!
Japan is the second biggest producer of Single Malt Whisky in the world.
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 two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
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.
