The distillery was opened in 2008 and now malt their own barley as well as use ready malted barley. The barley they use is local barley and produce around five tonnes per year which is around 5% of their requirements. This allows the distillery to practice with different types of barley and understand the flavour profiles from certain ways it is grown and harvested. This Japanese distillery are very focused on fermentation and one batch can take up to 90 hours to create the right bacteria to produce the type of wash they are looking for. They have two small stills which are both 2000 litres in capacity.
This distillery is still learning its craft, its innovative approach to whisky making is one of great stories and excitement. It’s a place to visit or just to sit back and enjoy what is being produced here in the comfort of a bar or in your own home.

Our Tasting Notes
Nose: Very fruity indeed, apricots and peaches spring to mind. There’s vanilla and citrus, with ripe bananas.
Palate: Citrus, grapefruit, peaches and apricots again lead the palate with vanilla and a little pepper. Toffee sweetness combines well with roasted nuts and a touch of ginger.
Finish: The vanilla is a again dominant, still lots of fruity flavours drying nicely on the tongue and back palate.
