Winning bid: £940.00
Lot number: 083-0313

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 7th edition of "The Game" series of Hanyu bottlings featuring somewhat strange hieroglyphs, perhaps depicting the game as the translation and understanding of these symbols.
