Gyokuto whisky is a Japanese world blend whose quality highlights all the know-how in the art of blending of the small distillery Saburomaru.
Composed of a blend of single malts distilled at Saburomaru and grain whiskies from Scotland, this small batch has a strong character expressing a well marked peat around 50ppm, but which leaves room for a whole bouquet of greedy aromas including notes of plum, hazelnut, red wine and baked apples, and a touch of leather.
Gyokuto is a creature from Japanese folklore, representing a white rabbit living on the moon, and this edition is part of the japanese world blends Moon Glow series paying homage to the moon, with a new edition every year since the distillery opened in 2018.
Uncolored and unchill-filtered, Saburomaru Blend Gyokuto was created from a rigorous selection of bourbon, sherry and the very rare Mizunara casks giving birth to 9000 bottles for this 2021 edition.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.

The history of Saburomaru distillery located in Tonami city (Toyama prefecture) starts in 1952 when Wakatsuro Shuzo, sake brewer and shochu producer, obtained the license to distill whisky.
Malt distillation began in 1954 with the creation of the Sunshine blend, and will continue discontinuously until 2016 when Wakatsuru Shuzo made the decision to renovate its facilities in the Hokuriku area to dedicate them to the production of malt whisky.
