Ichiro's Malt Chichibu The US Edition 2019 Single Malt Whiskey
One of Japan's smallest and most sought-after distillers, Ichiro Akuto's Chichibu distillery is also the youngest by far, having been founded in 2008. In fact, it was the first new distillery built in the country since the 1970s. Ichiro is the third generation of his family to be involved in brewing, but he runs his distillery with a slight experimental touch, all while paying deep homage to the traditions of Scotland. This one of three highly-limited single malt releases that Ichiro made for three specific markets in 2018 - the U.S., London, and Paris.
