Built in 1941 during World War II, 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 whisky production at Hanyu so stocks are not only attractively collectible but also limited and scarce.
This Ace of Clubs is from the Card series.
