Winning bid: £410.00
Lot number: 073-6215

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 the 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.

This Chichbu was specially selected for French importers, La Maison du Whisky. It features the artwork of Tay Bak Chiang, entitled " Night Owl" from 2011.

A sentiment we feel could apply to the staff at SWA the night before the auction goes live....
