The new modern Japanese dram on the block.

Shiki Shuzo Corporation is one of the modern Japanese Spirits producers that’s responsible for an impressive portfolio of premium Japanese Spirits. The Perfect Circle Whiskey Company is high on the lists of the most interesting ones.

MAEN The Perfect Circle Whisky is what you’d call the perfect modern dram. This is a gorgeous blend of malt and grain Whiskies that were first distilled 2-3 times in copper pot stills before they were put to rest for 3-5 years in American ex-Bourbon white oak casks.

But it’s not even just about the sophisticated and versatile Whisky with its tasty notes of spices, nuts, honey, and fruits, take a look at the minimalist bottle. The label was created by the Japanese calligraphy artist Juju Kurihara and features a circle – a sacred symbol in Zen Buddhism. An art piece both on the inside and the outside, this modern Whisky is best served neat or in a craft cocktail.

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