A 2018 limited edition riff on Ichiro's standard Malt & Grain bottling, which won the accolade of “World’s Best Blended Limited Release”. This limited edition release is a blend of 3 whiskies; a 27-year-old malt from Hanyu, a 35-year-old grain from Kawasaki, and a 5-year-old malt from Chichibu. Only 500 bottles were released and made available exclusively in Japan. 

 

Chichibu and Ichiro Malt’s are behind some of the most exciting releases of Japanese whisky since the distillery was founded in 2007. Located in Chichibu in the Saitama prefecture was founded by Ichiro Akuto, who’s garnered a reputation as the “rockstar” of Japanese whisky.

Creating exceptional young single malts and world blended whiskies, their first 10-year-old single malt was released in 2020. Demand has long out-stripped supply from the small distillery and in 2015 Ichiro began setting up a second distillery, Chichibu #2, two minutes from the original one but five times the size. The new distillery is expected to produce a more robust style of spirit.
