Winning bid: £70.00
Lot number: 081-2596

In 1985, Hombo Breweries opened the Mars Shinshu distillery in Miyata village at the foot of the Komagatake Alps in Japan's Nagano prefecture. Whisky production there takes place only during winter, with the rest of the year spent brewing beer and distilling other spirits. However, with the popularity of whisky enjoying a resurgence in Japan, "winter" now lasts for about six months at the distillery.

From Mars Whisky comes this unusually named "lucky cat" whisky. We're told that the owner of the distillery is so fond of his pet cat (apparently named "Mint") that he's dedicated the whole series to the lucky cat!

43% ABV / 70cl
