The small distillery of Chichibu, located in the mountainous region of Saitama, is today one of the most highly regarded in the world. Its single malts expressing an atypical maturity are the fruit of the long artisanal work of the owner and passionate Ichiro Akuto.  

This single cask distilled in 2011 and bottled in 2015 was exclusively aged in a Madeira wine barrel giving it a suave profile and an exceptional fruity freshness. On the palate, black fruits such as blackberry and blueberry dominate among a fruity and flowery bouquet and some aromas of malt and beer.  

For this limited edition of only 308 bottles, Akuto san has appealed to the artist Tay Bak Chiang for the illustration of the collector label.

Product limited to 1 bottles per order.

The distillery

The distillery Chichibu

Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, decided in 2007 to build a new whisky distillery in the town of Chichibu, 100 kilometers northwest of Tokyo.


Located near the old Hanyu distillery, the local climate with harsh winters and hot & humid summers, gives a certain maturity to the whiskies produced in Chichibu despite their relative young age (production started in 2008).


A small distillery, Chichibu produces in small quantities, but the remaining stocks of Hanyu, Kawasaki and Karuizawa, now exhausted but having been housed there, have allowed Ichiro Akuto to compose rare and exceptional blends. In 2020, the first of Ichiro Akuto's dreams came true with the first 10 year old single malt distilled, aged and blended in Chichibu and a long history beginning to be written.
