You’ve heard about Ichiro Akuto, right? If you haven’t, it’s about time you did! He is a rock star of the Japanese whisky world, and his family have been in the alcoholic beverage industry since the 1600s. Ichiro’s father ran the Hanyu distillery and experimented with whisky making until his unfortunate bankruptcy. Ichiro then founded his own Chichibu distillery, acquired the remains of the Hanyu stock and sold it as his own. Here, we have Ichiro’s malt whisky that was exclusively bottled for Yokohama Takashimaya. It was distilled in 2011 and bottled in 2016. Only 294 bottles ever released and like everything else from Ichiro, a true delight!
