The three cracking Chichibu On The Way bottlings bought together at last.
Chichibu distillery in Saitama, Japan was opened in 2008, and was the country’s first new distillery since Suntory opened Hakushu back in 1973. Chichibu was the brainchild of Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the legendary Hanyu distillery. The Ichiro’s Malt brand appeared in 2005 and rose to fame through the bottling of the last casks from Hanyu, particularly the sought after ‘Card’ series. The first Chichibu releases appeared under it in 2011.
The 'On the way' bottlings from the Chichibu distillery in Japan are made from a selection of 3 different cask types - first and refill bourbon barrels and Mizunara Japanese white oak, the latter containing some of the oldest whisky made at the distillery.
