About this deal
Inspired by traditional Scotch whisky he sought to craft a Japanese version of this great spirit that captured the climate and terrain of his native country, whilst drawing on Scottish know-how. Torii started his career at a pharmaceutical wholesaler, which also distilled western alcoholic beverages. The reinvigorated tasting lounge, on the other hand, is encircled by a vast array of original bottles.

Three sources of oak are used to mature this blend of single malts, old red Bordeaux barriques, ex-sherry butts and native Mizunara casks. It could be young wood, or it could be some crafting since laws in Japan haven’t defined or legally regulated their terms for a malt [this recently changed as of April 2021 – although it still allows distillers to include other cereal grains in “ Japanese whisky“].Despite being the first authentic Japanese whisky, the product was not well received in its home market due to a consumer taste for more subtle flavours than those in traditional Scotch whiskies. Enjoy the rich aroma of vanilla and the mellow, lingering aftertaste that arises from the toasted casks.
