Winning bid: £360.00
Lot number: 080-0470

Closed in 2000 and dismantled in 2004, Hanyu's legacy lives on thanks to Ichiro Akuto who purchased the remaining 400 casks and began releasing it in the Ichiro's Malt card series. This marketing masterstroke featured a different playing card on the label, allowing people to easily remember their favourites and encouraging collectors to complete the full deck. There were only 17 years of production at Hanyu so stocks are limited and scarce.

The Hanyu distillery ceased production in 2000, and was largely disassembled in 2004. A distillery was rebuilt on the site in 2008 by the founder's grandson, and is now named Chichibu. This whisky comes from the old stocks of Hanyu's final vintage.

Distilled: 2000

Age: 15 years old

46.5% ABV / 70cl

Bottle Number: 2295 / 3710
