Ichiro’s Malt is produced by the tiny Chichibu Distillery. A fine example of the Japanese distillers craft, we are pleased to offer the Malt & Grain and Double Distilleries at a greatly reduced price.
The Double Distilleries pure malt whisky combines malts from the closed Hanyu and new Chichibu distilleries. The Akuto family, whose history with sake production dates back to the 17th century, had operated the Hanyu distillery up until 2000 when the distillery was silenced due to financial difficulties and eventually dismantled in 2004 under new ownership. Bottled at 46% it has been matured, vatted and bottled at Ichiro Akuto’s Chichibu distillery.
