Made from 50 ppm peated barley, Saburomaru 0 The Fool was distilled in 2017 in the old stills renovated for the occasion but replaced in 2018 by two brand new Japanese-made stills.
Located in the town of Tonami in Toyama Prefecture in the heart of a region renowned for the quality of its spring water, the Saburomaru distillery also benefits from ideal climatic conditions for whisky production, with notably well-marked seasons favoring the aging of spirits.
Symbolizing a start from scratch with the opening of new possible paths, the tarot card The Fool represents with accuracy the state of mind of Takahiko Inagaki, owner and Master Blender of the distillery and incidentally great grandson of the founder of Wakatsuru, who has just started the new history of Saburomaru whiskies.
Already awarded at the World Whiskies Awards 2021 in its "cask strength" version, Saburomaru 0 The Fool is the whisky that bridges the gap between the historical know-how accumulated over the years and the future of the completely renovated distillery.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.
