A small craft distillery founded in 2016, Nagahama has been offering exclusive bottlings since 2020, including this single cask Nagahama French Oak Quarter Batch F0001.

Takashi Kiyoi the master blender and Yusuke Yahisa the distiller selected a single small French oak cask in which the whisky could mature and acquire more depth and complexity thanks to the reduced size of the cask. Left to its natural degree for bottling, this whisky is the most faithful expression of the know-how of the small Japanese craft distillery.

This unique bottling offers a rich aromatic palette among which one can find woody notes of oak, greedy notes, pastry, but also fruity notes of orange citrus fruits, and to finish some discreet toasted and peaty notes.

Bottled in 2020, this blend of only two casks is an ultra-limited whisky that testifies to the beginnings of this young distillery located in the town of Nagahama on the shores of Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture. Considered as the smallest distillery in Japan, Nagahama distills artisanally in limited quantities in small stills whose atypical shape reminds of the Arab architecture which gives them their nickname of aranbics.

Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
