Winning bid: £170.00
Lot number: 073-3091

From its Mizunara wash backs and small stills with steep lyne arms to the fact that the mashman uses a wooden paddle to stir the mash, Chichibu is a hands-on distillery with quality as an intrinsic focus. With ground now broken on a blending room, and an off-site cooperage, Ichiro Akuto's distillery, formed from the ashes of his grandfather's Hanyu distillery, is one of the finest producers in Japan.

Yet another interesting bottling from Japan. This one being matured in Ichiro Akuto's own version of the quarter cask. A shortened down hogshead.

Distilled: 2009

Bottled: 2013

Cask Type: Quarter casks

53.5% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 2376 / 3900

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
