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.

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.
