Facing the Akashi Kaikyo bridge from which it takes its name, the small Kaikyo distillery, which started operating in 2018, offers you a taste of its future productions with Hatozaki Pure Malt whisky.
Coming from the master blender's mix between several barrels of imported single malts including Bourbon and Sherry casks but also some Japanese single malt barrels aged in Mizunara barrels, the oak endemic to Japan.
Uncoloured and unchillfiltered, Hatozaki Pure Malt expresses on the nose a rich profile of malt and dried fruit which is enriched on the palate with honeyed notes and a light touch of smoke that lingers until the finish.

The brand Hatozaki
With a long experience as brewers started in 1856, particularly with Akashi-Tai sakes, the Yonezawa family has been distilling spirits since 1917. 100 years later, in 2017, the production of spirits gains new momentum with the installation of Forsyths stills and the creation of the Kaikyō distillery to produce Japanese whisky and gin.
While waiting for the first single malt distilled at the Kaikyō distillery to be sufficiently mature, Kimio Yonezawa uses his skills as a master blender on Hatozaki blend whiskies. Inspired by his travels abroad and his regular exchanges with foreign master distillers and blenders, especially Scottish, Kimio Yonezawa carefully craft Hatozaki whiskies using a two-step blending process.
