Mars The Lucky Cat “Hana” Blended Japanese Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 43% Age: No Age Statement Country: Japan
Mars Shinshu (to give it it’s full name) is a three hour drive northwest towards the Southern Alps. The distillery sits at 800 metres (2625 ft) which makes it the highest distillery in Japan. Better known as Mars distillery, it opened in 1985 using stills made for a mothballed distillery called Yamananashi. The distillery then closed in 1992 and the reopened again in 2011. It is now newly renovated and looking very modern and clean. The distillery is looking to produce a clearer wort (beer mix) to allow for a lighter and purer spirit creation. Barrels are stored onsite and in other regions of Japan to help experience less fluctuation in temperature.
The fifth edition, The Lucky Cat Hana, is a blended whisky that has been matured and finished with an Oloroso Sherry Casks, based on the motif of a soft and gentle female cat Hana. Finished with a fragrance reminiscent of brown sugar and maple syrup. 3000 bottle limited edition.
