Winning bid: £210.00
Lot number: 078-1147

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 whisky from Chichibu has a rather pretty pink hue. Distilled in 2009, it spent the first 3 years of its life maturing in quarter casks before being transferred into port pipes for a year before being bottled.

Distilled: 2009

Bottled: 2013

Cask Type: Port pipes and quarter casks

54.5% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 3083 / 4200
